Certainly. Slide one or two cartridges onto the stripper clip and insert as usual. The clip was designed to hold a max of 8 cartridges, because that's all the magazine well will hold.

Just make sure you don't come away with the infamous garand thumb!

Also, the definition of "Curio or Relic...

Clerk: Thank you sir. You've just completed the registration requirements for 10 dohickies.
