    a .260 is a .308 necked down to .260, so I don't see any reason a .308 mag wouldn't work. every dimension that contacts the mag is the same. one eyed mac would know for sure-- i think he has built .260's in aics stocks.

    I have a .260. I use AICS mags. *IF* you're going to build a .260, make sure that your smith understands that you intend to run AICS mags and either have him a). throat it appropriately or b). modify your AICS mags by removing the front spacer plate if you plan to run 139's-142's somewhat long (like say with .080-.100 of freebore), or c). run Alpha 2 mags which already have the front spacer plates removed.
