Magazine capacity restriction?

We all know magazines with a capacity of greater than 10 rounds are now illegal to buy/sell/transfer in Maryland.

Here is my question: Would it be legal to buy a 10 round .50 Beowulf AR magazine in Maryland?

don't push the envelope and make it worse for everyone............take a Saturday, take the youngsters on a mini trip to some awesome fun place in VA or PA and grab some standard mags on your way back.

Can I buy more than 10 Snicker bars at one time?

What about the larger size Payday bars?

Is there a .50 Grendel? What about Hrothgar?

A .50 Beowulf AR uses standard AR magazines, but a 30 round standard magazine can only hold 10 .50 Beowulf rounds. If that magazine simply had 10x .50 Beowulf written on the side instead of 30x 5.56, would it be legal to buy in MD since it is technically a 10 round magazine?

How is that a stupid question?

Who are you going to buy it from?
An undercover State Trooper?

Not sure how asking a question could "make it worse". Jesus are all 2a supporters in Maryland so spineless?

Yes.
