    To Brian and any others that shoot 6.5 grendel.

    I have tried Stoner mags from midwayusa and have fail to feed with every mag. This is a new build and it could be other causes, but I would like mag recommendations.

    Hey AKay, BRD give me your number and I will call you later. In the mean time...

    My Stoner mags work fine in my guns.

    I have had issues with some ASC mags, but not all of them.

    I have recently tried E-lander (made by Alexander Arms, and sold through Midway, AA, etc.) and find that they work very well. They are currently my Go-To mags.

    ASC when I first get them I take them apart clean them then oil them down for a day or so and have had no problems, the next ones would be ELander I think they have came out within the last year and seem to be ones that work too. BANG BANG!!

    Curly, I have actually has ASC mags that won't feed rounds consistently because of a physical obstruction issue. The fix is to grind down the front of the mag or to bend open the feed lips. I have done both and both will resolve the issue.

    I have never had any troubles with them. I know about yours though. As with anything that is stamped out in mass production I am sure some bad ones slip through. I am glad the 8 or 10 that I have have had no issues. I don't need to buy any more, these should last me my life time. MAG MAG
