Default 5.56 drum magazine

Thinking of getting a Magpul 60 round magazine.
Any recommendations, thoughts on this.
Will be primarily used for 300 Blackout, also for .223/5.56

While I like the idea, I feel for the cost just buy 5, 40rd mags for less.

I did just this.

Works great.

I have never done this because the other drum mags I have bought never work properly. NOT MAGPULL The drums I have baught from guns shows from years ago never work at full capacity. But they weren't Magpul, I doubt Magpul would market them if they didn't work properly.

I have several Magpul D60 drums. They work great BUT they are a royal pain to load.

Good to hear. I got a couple a few days ago. Haven't tried them out yet.

I have two D60s, and they both work great.
