30Rnd. STANAG SD is a 30 round magazine holding 5.56x45mm subsonic ammunition. Due to the slower bullet, the rounds loaded in it are both more quiet and shorter range than those in the 30Rnd. STANAG magazine.

It can be used in both silenced and non-silenced weapons. When used in a non-suppressed weapon, zombies react as if it was a silenced shot, making it very useful for killing in cities. It still sounds just as loud as the normal shots to players and produces a normal muzzle flash.

Okay just to clear up things I will explain the differences between SD and non SD ammunition so first of all you need to know when something breaks the sound barrier a loud bang appears sound travels at 20'°C (68 '°F) at 343 M/s (1125 foot per second) you can imagine a bullet travels faster than that therefore the difference only lies there that the SD ammo is slightly slower than sound resulting in having less force a non silenced weapon produces two sounds one firing the bullet and one having the bullet to break the sound barrier the suppressor on the M4A1 SD for examplejust cancels that very initial firing of the bullet not the breaking of the sound barrier

you would be able to shoot faster than sound ammo with an SD weapon but it would have no use then

I found these with my M4A1 Camo SD but now when I'm running out of ammo, I only keep finding the normal STANAG rounds. =(

It's worth noting that when you use SD mags in a unsuppressed weapon, there is no loud crack from shots. Ergo, if you shoot at a player with an M16A2 with normal STANAG mags, they'll usually hear a loud crack. With SD mags, they'll just hear the initial shot.

If I'm not mistaken, they've fixed the terrible accuracy while using SD mags in M16A2 and M4, so now you don't have to aim at the waistline to get a headshot.
