Help me out folks, I need some info. I have an AR-10 (the SEBR) That I plan on hunting with. Everyone said that there is a 5 round limit for mags. All I have are 10's and 20's. I have looked in the hunters pamphlet and even called the Wildlife main office. They could not site a refference for me. Does anyone know where that might be?

Any help would be appreciated!

A couple guys who hunt here in WA told me they only load 5 cartridges in their rifles (non AR types). However, just in case, I'm planning to get a 5 rounds mag. Very cheap compared to the hassle.

Let me take a look in the Big Game regs and see if anything pops out at me.

You can just block your 10rd or 20rd magazines using a piece of wooden dowel of you don't want to splurge on a 5rd magazine. Dowel ords are cheaper than a $35 magazine.

Ok I see where the specify a maximum of 3 shells in a shotgun for hunting game birds.

I don't see anything that specifies a magazine capacity limit for big game though.

Searching for magazine gives one hit, and that has to do with it being illegal to have a loaded rifle in a vehicle.

No hits for rounds or capacity.

Yea, you can have a loaded magazine though, but it cant be attached to the rifle.

Yes, I know, that's state law though, not a game regulation.

I have used my M1a, FAL and SMLE to hunt with for a long time. The gamies never say anything but "What is it". The gamies told me that WA only has round limit for shotguns, I believe to comply with fedral migartory bird laws.
Scored a nice big 2pt last monday with my M1a.

I wish I could fit 5 rounds in my rifle. I get 4, and if/when I go to an Ultra Mag, I'll only get 3.

You might want to check out www.armalite.com

or

http://www.cmmginc.com

They might have a 5 magazine. I know www.cmmginc.com sells 5 round mag for the 223.

Good luck.

Here's pics of my AR15
