Remember, while higher capacities sound nice in theory mags do tend to get rather long and heavy in 7.62x51.
With that being said, good luck and I'd buy a few to try regardless of capacity/design.
Well the straight 30rd mags from South Africa and Canada seem to work perfectly fine for me. I've tried both (as rare as they are) with zero problems. Just going off of them as an example.

FWIW.
