Both the 6.5 & 6.8 use a steel mag WITH DIFFERENT FOLLOWERS. If I come across any 6.8 Followers I WILL TRY using them in my HK .5.56 mags. They either work, or don't work. ???

You can't simply put a 6.8 follower in a 5.56 mag body. The groves in the sides of the 6.8 mag are shallower, and in slightly different positions. When the 6.8 first came out, there was a lot of misinformation, including the mag myth. PRI makes the best. I haven't tried C-products' new mags, but the old ones didn't always run (brownish-red follower). I also haven't run Barrett's mags, but have been told they are as good as PRI's mags are.

I've read that the 6.5 mags and 6.8 mags are the same, just different colored followers. Can anyone speak to this? I may try to get a 6.8 kit and already have several 6.5 mags.
