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" vs 2.870"), but they may require modification to the feed ramp of the receiver. Check if your action would be able to feed 2.960" long cartridges, or have it modified if you want to use magazines without binder plates.
