    6.5 Grendel mags in XCR

    I was just curious if anybody has tried using Cproducts 6.5 Grendel mags loaded with 7.62x39. There have been a number of people that have had good success with them in the AR platform when using a x39 upper. Usually you can only get 22 - 24 rounds in the 25rnd mag. If it works, it would be a lower profile fix to the huge curved 30rnd mags.

    Interesting idea,I wish I had the x39 kit to try it,I hate that funky curve...lol

    Has anybody tried this yet with 7.62x39?

    I can test a 6.5 mag with Wolf MHP in my XCR if somebody will sell one to me or send me a loaner.

    I got the 25 rounder in 6.5 and actually tried it with dummies - chambering and ejection seem fine. Will try on the range in a few days and post here

    Out of curiosity, how many dummy rounds did you put in the mag? Considering the difference in 7.62x39 and 6.5 Grendel cartridge case taper, I'd be very surprised if it'd work well with anywhere near a full 25 rounds.

    I only had 4 dummies.
    I did hear that someone managed to get around 21 x 7.62 rounds in the 25-round Grendel mag.

    Thanks. It'll be interesting to see how it works for you with a greater number of rounds in the mag.
