Has anybody used stock AR15 mags successfully with the 5.45 ammo? The reason I ask is that I have pre-ban mags in 5.56 which I would love to use. Perhaps some adjustment of the follower would make them reliable with at least 20 of 30 rounds loaded?

All the time, I've used the C products 10 round bodies and 30 rounders with no adjustment to the follower and never had an issue.

They were 5.56 C products mags, correct?

Correct labeled 5.56, I've never used the Pmags with my 5.45 but C products all the time.

Lancers can handle 5.45
