Why aren't they straight?

    the same reason the 303 Inch Bren gun is curved Put a cartridge one on top of the Other and you get a curve

    The cartridges are not cylinders,   they have a conical shape.   Start laying them out one next to the other and you do not get a straight line,  you get a curve.   So the magazine is curved too.     The AR round is cylindrical in shape.  Lay them out one next to the other and you get a straight line so the magazines are straight.

    Because if it was straight it would be long and cumbersome
