I am very happy with it!
This is for the rotary magazine version of RARR, right?

I’ve been in contact directly with the Lucky 13 manufacturers and although their 10 round .223 magazine is a replacement for the RARR rotary item, they do not fully advise it for 300BLK due to feeding issues experienced when slow cycling during testing. Here’s what they had to say:

“Our Unimag line of magazines are designed to be a straight swap replacement for the Ruger American and Ranch rifle rotary magazines. Unfortunately however, at present we do not have a model specifically designed and suited to the 300BLK cartridge.

Quite a few people have contacted us and are using our 223Rem specific Unimags in their 300BLK rifles. This is not something that we can recommend directly however; the issue arises when using some of the shorter COL length factory ammunitions the shoulder length of the 300BLK cartridge can cause early release of the round from the magazine feed lips and cause a mis-feed when cycling the action slowly. We have not yet had a direct complaint of this issue from anyone using our magazines with 300BLK, but it is an issue we have found in our own testing and we see this as a potential to be able to cause this failure in real world use.

We are working on a 300BLK specific Unimag Mod II for the Ruger line, however with our existing development and production backlog we do not expect these to be able to be released in the first half of 2019.”

The really fun thing about this BLK in a bolt gun is the wide spread of bullet weights, powders and loads that an AR platform just cannot do readily. As for loads, the data base here is chock full of good info. My favorite is the 125 gr TNT over some H110 or 300-MP. I was about to order from the Lucky Thirteen guys last year, then the site went off line. They sure do look like the ticket for the Ruger. I have slightly modified some of my mags in the front feed ramp. I shoot mostly heavy subs in my RARR, but also a fair amount of supers.
