Does your Bushmaster chambered .308/7.62 rifle take PMAGs? Yes or no, and specifically what model(s) do you have?

I can find that the Magpul 308/7.62 PMAG, or PMAG 20LR, is compatible with Bushmaster's ORC, but how about there Hunter model?

The new BM .308 OCR uses SR-25 style magazines, or Pmags. The older .308 BM's used FAL mags like the current RRA .308's.

I own an Armalite AR-10 and the only mags that I've found to fit it are Armalite magazines. They're almost like a M-14/M1A magazine...with a different latch. I know P-Mags won't work in it. I had a RRA AR and it took FAL magazines. I didn't like the way it latched in the receiver at all...too loose.

The AR-10B uses modified M14 mags. The newer ArmaLite AR-10A use SR-25 mags, or Pmags. The SR-25 style was won the magazine war and is the defacto standard.

The ArmaLite M14 mags, currently GenII are very affordable if you have the older ArmaLite AR-10B style rifle, about $35 ea.

I HAD a Bushmaster LR308 MOE Middy; it shipped w/ a PMAG and they work just fine.
