Default Mystery Magazine I found out hunting

While hunting last weekend I found this magazine loaded with 10 rounds of .308 Win.

Can any of you eagle eyed fellow forum members help me figure out what it really goes to?

One friend thought it might be an Archangel 10 rnd for a Remington 700 short action....doesn't seem right to me....

Thanks everyone!

Randy

Now you will have to buy a gun so you have something to keep the magazine in.

I agree with you all.....looks just like a Russian Saiga .308W magazine I looked at online after you all mentioned it.
