If have an SR25, Magpul now has a 50-round 7.62mm mag for you (VIDEO)

Like a bigger version of their vaunted D60 magazine but in 7.62×51/.308, Magpul’s new D50 drum has been years in the making.
Weighing in at 1.5-pounds empty– and 4.5 when stuffed full of 50 rounds– the D50 is capable of accommodating longer-than-SAAMI-spec match ammunition, up to 2.830-inches OAL, such as military M118LR ball.
The D50 is built for use in SR25 style platforms, giving 50-rounds on tap in a magazine about the same height as a standard double-stack 25, and as such could prove popular with military units using M110s. (Photos: Magpul)
Optimized for use in SR-25/M110 platforms, the new drum is similar to the company’s now tried-and-true D60 and includes a translucent window on the rear to keep tabs on the amount of brass inside and the capability to be disassembled with a flat blade screwdriver.
The D50, right, holds 50 rounds of 7.62mm, while its older and smaller brother, the D60, left, packs 60 5.56mm rounds.
Bad news? The only color is black, the cost is $149 a pop, and the D50 cannot be used with other rounds such as .260 Remington and 6.5 Creedmoor.
