    howa 1500 detachable mag system problems???

    hi all

    i have a cdi mag system with one of the new AI 223 mags now my problem is im told you can use 204 rounds in the mag but i cant see how it will work as the cases when loaded in the mag to the back will not get picked up by the bolt as it will not travel that far back, load them to far forward and the length of the rounds becomes an issue. Any ideas or will this just not work and should i go back to the internal mag?

    Cheers
    dave

    Not uncommon when using a mag system that allows a longer OAL. The reciever may need to be opened on the bottom slightly, and the bolt stop altered.
