Question for you if you don't mind, since you are able to run DAG ammo in your MG42.
I have an original MG2 from 1944, and I have been trying to get the DAG ammo to run in it. How are you getting it to work? I have swapped the 308 conversion parts onto the MG42, swapped the bolt head with the DAG bolt head, and swapped the booster cone with the DAG booster "bubble". When I shoot it, it only fires the round, and does not eject or reload. Obviously not enough power? But what am I missing? It runs 100% in 8mm and 308.
I really appreciate the help!
