    Are there any brands of mags out there with a little elbow room for more COAL? I have one mystery mag that lets me push out to 2.283 and I've had very impressive results pushing them out to that length. Pmags seem to top out somewhere in the 70s and USGI mags are even shorter than that. I'd love to have a mag that let me out to 2.3 or so :evil: Anyone know?

    There was a company a while back that had mags called a "LRP" that was a single stack design that held 8 or 10 shots. I believe these let you set your loads out to almost 2.5", something like 2.47" but I'm not positive on that. And good luck finding them... Last I heard DPMS bought the design but not sure if it ever went anywhere.
