One possible, though expensive solution would be to have both a NATO and an AUG mag stock and use only NATO mags with the 300 BLK and only only AUG mags with the 5.56.

The reason why I say NATO mags with 300 blk is because I do not know if 300 blk would work with AUG mags.

I would assume that 300 BLK would fit into AUG magazines. Part of the reason that 300 BLK was designed (and is so appealing) is to fit into magazines that were designed to accept .223/5.56 (plus chamber in a .223, etc).

An easier option, of the nearly limitless ones that exist, might be marking items that are 300 BLK with tape. I plan on running black tape around any AUG magazines that I will keep loaded exclusively with 300 BLK, and also running some tape around the hand guard of the barrel to clearly mark it. Other more permanent markings might include paint markers, engravings, etc.

As long as you have a system in place, take your time when changing from .223 to 300 BLK, and exercise some common sense, the issue of destroying your firearm by attempting to fire the wrong ammunition shouldn't be an issue.

I intend to just have a just a few Magpul AUS pmags with silver sharpie the matrix labeling them as "300"and "SUB".  The labels are so I can more easily visually distinguish them from my AR-15 pmags, even though they dont fit my ARs.  I'll use Steyr waffles for 5.56 and AUS PMAG for 300 BLK.  I dont need a ton of BLK mags as it will be a secondary niche caliber (like the 9mm conversion kit) and 5.56 will be primary for cost reasons.

Steyr AUG= Austrian combat Legos since 1977.
Why SBR when you can AUG?! - Haven't we been taxed enough already?

I had the same thought MPD, makes it far easier to keep 'em separate.

No need to go to that extreme... the Austrian mags and the Magpul AUG mags are tactilely and visually distinct enough to be safe.

I'd love to hop on any sort of group  buy for a 300 blk aug barrel. Hopefully the factory would make them with the US thread pitch for our common cans and muzzle devices.

I think I'd run my Steyr mags in 556 and pick up AUS Pmags for 300 if this became a thing here. I read a long post from a local guy who had a Kaboom in his AR from the standard folly. Scary stuff but he wasnt badly injured.

Ive been wanting one of these since I first saw the IG post 2 years ago. I might still buy one of these but Iím still really pissed Steyr quit chrome lining AUG bbls.
