Have to agree with Muir. Other than the bling/Rambo factor what is the real use of a 10 round mag? Serious question.
Indeed. Running out after 5 or 6 rounds is very annoying. As usual with this kind of thing there is a reason why a spec is available, irrespective that some will find it unappealing. It is because others will use it. My .223 runs a 10 shot mag and it gets emptied on goats regularly, whereupon the second 10 shot is whipped out of my pocket!A 10-shot mag would come in *very* handy if culling a herd of feral goats.
That's probably the only downside I can think of to my Sako 75 in .223: no 10-round mags are available.
