308 AR Magazines

 

Magazine Selection Guide for AR-10 & 308 AR Weapon Platforms

April 26, 2020

What are the best magazines for your .308 AR or Armalite AR-10? Unlike the AR-10’s offspring, the AR-15, there isn’t an abundance of magazine choices for the large frame .308 based platforms. In fact, a majority of the AR .308’s are designed to utilize the Magpul LR-308 magazine aka “308 PMAG”. It could probably be said the Magpul 308 magazines have become the unofficial standard.

Cementing this fact, Armalite has been transitioning away from the M14 magazine based AR-10 “B” in favor of the Magpul compatible AR-10 “A” variant. DPMS is out of business, which eliminates the largest supplier of steel .308 AR Magazines. FAL magazine based AR’s would be extinct if not for Rock River Arms. The list continues. Now, this is not to say there aren’t other brands of .308 AR magazines, and there are. They just aren’t as popular as the Magpul. In fact, as I write this, I prefer the Lancer .308 magazines to the Magpul offering. My reasons are a story for another day.
