Will the 6.8 spc ammo work with standard ar15 mags or do you have to use specific mags of the 6.8?

Bodies maybe slightly wider, but more importantly the feed lips are different. I don't know about their 6.8 SPC mags, I have a Grendel 6.5 and this place makes excellent 6.5 Grendel mags, but I would assume that they would be good. (I've read that 6.8 SPC mags will work in the Grendel and the other way around, but have no way of testing it).

The 6.8SPC mags that I have are steel. I haven't tried any 223 mags. But I think the aluminum mags will tend to flex when you insert 6.8 rnds in them. Haven't compared the mags side by side.
