Mags are the Achilles Heal of AR15 wildcats. That shortened case is going to be a real challenge because of the dead space the round has to travel before going into the chamber. It gives it too much room to get out of place and cause jams. You will most likely need to extend the feed lips somehow. Maybe spot weld some flaps to the existing lips? A mini tig rig and a good welder will be needed.
