The ones I'm using for rapid fires are old Colt 20 rounders. They work great for across the course shooting. Very reliable feeding and the shorter length makes it easier to use in the prone position.
Of course I have a pile of 30-round issue aluminum mags from the 80's and 90's that followed me home somehow. Adventureline seems to be the best overall brand. Sanchez seems to give me the most trouble. I also have some old steel 20, 30 and 40 round mags made by Sterling that I kept when I traded off my AR-180. They work very well also.
If you have a HK dealer around, the item # for the mags is 233614. Their website has dealer locations. To avoid confusion, they are magazines for the HK 416, which works in M16, M4, AR15 etc etc. Don't get 417 mags because they are not 5.56mm. I got mine left over from gov contract issue that were dropped off my hand reciept when I left, but I'd buy more if necessary.
Midway USA has them for $50 each. Cheaperthandirt they are like $60. I really think a local HK dealer may get you a better deal.
