    Yep, got one for the 308, spring is a bit loose and last 2 rounds (of 10) don't feed, had to sand it down a bit to fit my dpt chassis, worked fine in the plastic factory stock

    Thanks, 223nut thats the sort of info I'm looking for.

    I'll pick your knowledge for a minute if you don't mind

    Did you import it without any drama[ being a ten shot]?

    Did you complain about the last 2 not feeding and if so did they respond ?

    What total cost to get here to your door ?
    Thanks.

    I have two 10-round mags from David Waters in .223 and .308.

    Both allow long COAL to take advantage of the long high BC projectiles.

    I have not had any problems with either of them, they work really well.

    Talk to David directly about importation. Its easy.

    I forgot I have a 6 shot in .308, not a 10 shot. Some photos for comparison.

    .223 factory 6 shot mag vs Waters 10 shot mag, with 50gr Z-Max loaded to 2.260". You can see how much room there is for fast twist barrels shooting 80gr VLDs or similar:

    223 Waters mag, 10 shot:

    .308 factory 3 shot mag vs Waters 6 shot mag, with 178gr ELD-X loaded to 2.917", you can see that this would not fit in the factory mag.

    He usually batch manufactures and they go quickly. I think he must sometimes get a bit mixed up with how many orders he has. Give him a call. Mine arrived quickly once despatched with good comms.

    Well mine finally arrived in the post today,quickly put it together and very happy with it
    Heaps of room for loading out further and comfortably loads and feeds 6 rounds.
    Hopefully it will be durable.
