Aghhhh Help!!!!!

 

Looking to gather up the parts and materials needed to put together a nice FDE 22-250 build on the AR-10 platform. However at this point and time I am struggling to find out any information on magazines or magazine modifications (if any) required to feed on a semi-auto platform. I have google searched to the ends of the internet and am either overlooking it or just not looking in the right places all together.

 

Current build sheet: (Pretty much Aero so I can one stop shop)

 

Aero Precision M5 Builder Set (Upper and Lower) with 15" Atlas R-One Hand Guard

Aero M5 MOE LPK

Aero Carbine Buffer and Spring

MagPul UBR Gen2 Collapsible Stock

Deadshot "Custom" 20" Stainless Steel HBAR Barrel w/ 1-12 Twist and a Rifle Length Adjustable Gas System

All the information I am finding and seeing is that a standard 7.62 PMAG will work however they have horrible feed issues with more than 8 rounds. So technically I can get it built and hash out the feed issues maybe look at some magazine modifications or 3d printed parts haha. 

 

Maybe a 22-250 magazine modification is my claim to the big bucks haha.

Haha Thanks Glenn. I saw this one when I initially started digging for answers and instantly decided I was going a different route. Luckily I did just find a thread from almost 5 years ago by a google search and dive that states that they will feed just fine from a 7.62 mag. I guess the only way to test the theory is to get it built. 

 

Stay tuned..........

The standard 7.62's work like you say if downloaded.   Even if it is a no go there you can always go to something even more exotic, and more challenging, like a 220 Swift...LOL I set up a 600 Remington 308 with a 22-250 barrel and never had any feed issues but bolt guns are a whole different kettle of fish.
 

You might talk to Dead Shot as they may have some resource people out there just like I am for a couple of companies

Seems case taper is the real issue. That would take a redesign on the mag body.

Yep that is the hangup. A 22-250 AI would be a better deal but the sharp shoulder might make another issue to deal with. If you blow out the case body  to cure the one you cause the other.

I've been giving this some thought and talked to Ritch about it. It really needs a non-standard(308 is a standard) extension to run properly but the hot, as in EASY, ticket is to go with a 22 Creedmoor. Better performance and standard magazines run fine. Tactical Ammunition does the barrels with the ramp sizes set up for the Creed.
