AR 15 - 6.5 Grendel or 224 Magazine question?

Can .223/556 Stanag magazine be used for 6.5 Grendel or .224 Valkyrie upper? If not, ca regular magazines be modified for any of these calibers?

Thanks in advance

Update:

Reason I'm asking is, I've DSI DS15 fixed mag AR due to stupid CT laws. I would like to convert it to long distance 6.5 G or .224 Valkyrie

    The .223/5.56 magazine will not work reliably for .223 Val (don't know about the 6.5 Gren).  For .224 val you need to use 6.8 SPC magazines.

    It will not work in anything you mentioned.

    No, you need a 6.5 Grendel magazine for that caliber upper, and you need a 224 Val (or 6.8SPC) mag for that upper. 223 Stanags wont work for either caliber.

    The magazine fits in the lower receiver, not in the upper receiver.
