If you take a single stack 450 Bushmaster magazine it will run fine in a WSSM. I have a 25 WSSM and it is quite a fun little round.

Ah, AR-10 platform. Might still be in the cards unless itís a bunch of proprietary stuff where you canít swap out components and get the weight down to reasonable. It would be very nice to have one lower and be able to swap between 22-250 and 243 uppers. Iíve been back and forth so much on doing a 6 ARC, but if this develops into something fairly decent, I wonít think twice about it again and Iíll do just that, 22-250 and 243 switch gun.

My barrel should be here in June. I've seen the Alex pro magazines. Seems odd to me that I can load a 10 round mag, lock the bolt back and chamber a round every time in a 243. I either made a costly mistake or it will be a winner. Good to see there might be an option.

I too saw the BCA 22-250 deal. Looks like they have modded a amend2 mag to run the 22-250. Iím curious to see what has been done to the mag in order to work. I run a amend2 mag on my 6.5CM with no issues. So Iím optimistic

BCA saw me coming, I ordered one. Like a fish with a hook in his mouth.
Like someone above said, I like a good challenge.

Alex pro seems to have the magazine issue figured out if the BCA modded mag donít work.

Down the 22-250 rabbit hole &#128371;

Didnít know they were available yet. I se they are listed at $584 and $599. Figured they would be about the normal $399 like all their other uppers. Iíll hold off for now since I already have two of their 243ís that I donít shoot.lol

BCA had a video out that I don't see anymore that showed the magazine. It looked like a standard gen3 magpul but had a plastic insert on the front side of the magazine to make up for the short 22 250. They don't have the mags on their site but I would hope their not going to be 200.

I got a email a few weeks ago- was available for pre order starting 5/18. Says it ships in 2-4 weeks.
On the email it stated, they use a modded magazine.
The picture on website is a Amend2 magazine.
I pre-ordered one. Wonít get around to building it till fall-ish. Machining to be done on lower and I just order parts slowly so it donít seem so expensive. Ha ha

Pre order price was $509 if I remember right.

I would assume the magazines that come with the upper are priced similar to $200 from the $399 to $599 price increase over all the other AR 10 upper prices listed. When the hype is over on them in 6 to 8 months Iím sure they will priced in line with all their other uppers. Like anything new the company is going start out with a higher, inflated price and figure they will always get more money from the ones of who have to to have it first. After waiting and thinking about them, and remembering my 243 BCA issues, Iím not in a rush for it anymore. Iíll let the bugs get worked out of them and let the prices drop after the they sit on the 2nd run for a while. I donít want to get a dud and wait almost a year to get a working upper back like I did with my 2nd 243 from them. I will be curious to see how well and accurate they shootÖ or donít shoot first from the Guinea pigs that buy them first. Who ever buys one make sure to post your results here. Iím sure they will probably function and shoot fine. Once again a proprietary magazine for it which tells me the OP is going to have to fabricate something in his magazine to get it to work reliably.

i aint picking one up till they use another finish besides parkerized.

i'm also leery about the 1:14 twist. i know the caliber is geared around 55gr stuff... but as a reloader i want options. i see other folks offering them in 9 twist, etc.

the combo of the twist and finish made it a hard pass for me for now.
