50 Beowulf Magazines in Canada

Within Canada, rifle magazines for semi-automatics are limited to 5 rounds. 5 rounds of whatever they’re designed for. So what happens when you design a STANAG-compliant magazine for the enormous 50 Beowulf? You get a magazine that can legally hold 14-15 rounds of 223.

***Update Nov 18, 2015: The RCMP considers these “dual use” magazines and considers them prohibited. Read more here.***

According to RCMP bulletin 72, magazines are limited to the capacity of the round they were designed for. Here’s the exact wording: “The capacity is measured by the kind of cartridge the magazine was designed to contain. In some cases the magazine will be capable of containing more than 10 rounds of a different caliber; however that is not relevant in the determination of the maximum permitted capacity.”
