MDT AICS-pattern metal magazines are manufactured from high strength steel, nitride-finished and coated with Cerakote Elite for ultimate durability and performance. The short action magazines are offered for .308 Win and 6.5 Creedmoor family cartridges, and are available in 5-round, 10-round and 12 round capacity. The 308 based magazines are available with or without the front binder plate. Without a binder plate you get a longer COL (2.960-inch vs 2.870-inch), but they may require modification to the feed ramp of the receiver. Check if your action would be able to feed 2.960-inch long cartridges, or have it modified if you want to use magazines without binder plates.
