You can find 5 round mags at 44mag.com

Specific link here.

I'm going to guess its cheaper then buying from springfield. These are essentially the same mags as well. They can sometimes take a little finesse getting them out when unloading your rifle.

Thought I'd toss this tidbit out as well, though I am far from an expert.

As hunting with an M1A goes, i've been using these as my hunting rounds:

Muzzle velocity is pretty close to standard M80 ball, so no over pressure worries, the ballistic tip will feed correctly, and I can say from experience this round holds together nicely. Sent one through 2 aspen tree's and dug it out of the 3rd. Round held together, and didn't fragment. 165 grain round though, so it might be a little on the light side as a hunting round goes, but it's definitely safer for the rifle.

For zeroing the scope, I'd use these to get in close (cause their cheaper in price), then do my final zero with the above mentioned rounds.

Only 2 grains different in the projectile, 0.01 difference in ballistic coefiecient, and 50 FPS less on muzzle velocity. The two rounds are very close in a ballistic calculator.
