Yeah, I heard the new MB bb (green bag) the diameter is inconsistent.. I could be wrong though..
I will try the .28 on mine MAG mags and let you know..
Yeah, they were the green bag ones. I'm not sure if it's that they're inconsistent or that they're just too small allowing two to wedge side-by-side. Issue doesn't appear on KA metal 68rnd midcaps it appears.

I have several of these mags, and i love them, As for the circle thing?

It lets you disassemble the mag. If you want, you can remove it, and inside you will find a spring, with a plastic spacer in it. If you remove the spacer, you will bump the capacity of the mags up to ~130ish.

Its a pain at first, but after 2 or 3, you get the hang of it.

I tried the green bag MB .28 bb in my MAG mags and indeed the bbs stuck in the mags. I have to give the mag a tiny shake and it is good to go, but this issue can be really annoying if you use semi.... (I do not find any issue or miss feed bb when I use the MB .25 bb with the red label on the clear zip lock bag)

I too used to have no issues with the old mad bull red bags, but have lots of issues with the new green bags...

I too had that problem in my AKM MAG mags with the Green MB .28's

Required lubing, even then it gave me problems with those bb's.
Bastards - not a single problem.

Seems the new MB .2/.25/.28 bbs are tiny smaller in diameter then the classic bbs. Maybe that couses the bb jams in the MAG mags?

The Red labeled package:
MadBull 0.25g 4000rd. Precision IPSC Grade B.B.
Dia. : 5.98 +/- 0.01mm


The new Green bag:
MadBull 0.25g Precision BBs x4000
5.95mm +/- 0.01mm

I have a set of the exact same magazines, they feed very well...provided you don't overload them.

While some may be having issues using the smaller diameter Madbull BB's, I have not. In addition, I have had similar jams while using Bastards, because I overloaded the mag.

If you're feeding with a standard loader, as soon as you start to feel the BB's requiring more force to insert, STOP. Yes, the smaller diameter of the Madbulls may make them more prone to jamming, but it has more to do with the fact that the magazine is plastic.

If you overload them (force the spring compression) the mag will begin to split slightly, allowing for the BB's to start lining up beside one another instead of on top. Be mindful of how you load these, or any other plastic mags and you should see reduced instances of jamming. A little silicone oil (as suggested earlier) will help as well.
