The 6.8 SPC magazine is different than that of the 5.56. Also in most you will find a Blue Follower.

not for sure what the difference is, they are about the same size, but the makers of 5.56mm and 6.8mm rifles have different part numbers on the magazines. the 30rnd size in 5.56 and the same size mag in 6.8 holds 26 i think. so the magazine must be different in some way.

if it were me, call Bushmaster or RRA or one of the other makers of a 6.8mm and see if the mags will interchange.
