MDT is now making a metal double stack mag for 6BR, 12 rounder.
This will be a hot seller one would think.
The bulletin says 64.99.
The website says 89.99. Is there a promo code I missed?
Does it work?
I guess we shall see. But really I have no doubt that the mags will function properly, the suspect will be more if your action is up to the task of picking the round up and then after firing extraction and ejection.
I have a 6br barrel on order and had never shot a 6br until this past Thursday. This is my buddy's that we headspaced on a Savage repeater. We ran it with two Magpul p-mags and two AICS mags with the Primal kits installed. As long as you manipulated the bolt with a medium fast stroke all four ran without issue.
This ^^^ I noticed also. I would call and ask questions before I purchased, but that's just me. I'd rather speak to someone on the phone then text or email.
Perhaps it is US$ vs CDN$
Yes its $89.99 Canadian. I ordered 2.
I have built 3 BR repeaters prior to the availability of these kits and magazines. It’s very important that the magazine sits as high as possible for best feeding IMO.
It's tell me $89.99 USD for the BR magazine and $64.99 for the 5 round 308 mags.
will they work in anything other than the AICS bottom housing?

New Magazine for 6mmBR and 6 BR Improved Precision Rifles
As the practical/tactical game has evolved, with low recoil and high accuracy becoming ever more important, many top competitors have moved to smaller cartridges such as the 6mm Dasher and its parent, the 6mmBR Norma. These cartridges deliver outstanding accuracy plus good barrel life. However, the “short, fat” 6BR/Dasher design doesn’t feed optimally in magazines designed for the .308 Win family of cases. Yes you can modify your own magazines (Mag Mod HERE), or buy a pricey conversion kit, but now there is a turn-key solution from MDT (Modular Driven Technologies).
MDT’s 6mm BR magazine fits the parent 6mmBR cartridge and all the popular varients including the 6 BRA, 6 Dasher, and 6 BRX. MDT says this new 12-round magazine is a “one-step solution [delivering] smooth, reliable feeding for the most popular rifle cartridges in precision rifle competitions.”
MDT built this AICS-pattern mag for PRS/NRL competitors and anyone wanting to run 6mmBR-family cartridges in mag-fed actions: “The limiting factor for competitors running 6mm BR variants has been feeding. Until now, the only option has been to purchase an AICS-pattern magazine plus an additional kit to make the magazines work with the shorter cartridges. This solution costs upwards of $100 or more and can require additional tuning to work in most rifles.”
The MDT 6mm BR mag has a maximum internal length of 2.580″, which accommodates pretty much any 6mm bullet you’d want to use. These MDT magazines are crafted from quality steel, nitride-treated, then black Cerakote finished inside and out. To reduce friction between cartridge and magazine body, MDT added two internal ribs which provide a smooth transition from double stack to single-feed.
I wish I shared your confidence but I am a realist. In reality many short action guns have feeding issues with the BR based cartridges and AICS type mags. I tried two different kits and neither worked and as far as manipulating a bolt just right to get cartridges to feed, well, that's just not reliable feeding.
I badly want these to work but I think I am going to save my $100 bucks until the reports start comingout. From the pictures it appears we are just dealing with a factory "kitted" magazine. This works for some but not for others.
