Anyone compared Yugo M76 mags to 30-06 Hunter mags?

The M-77 magazines are shorter and wider.

I assume that the M-76 being for 7.92x57 are also shorter than the hunter magazines for 7.62x63 and are also too wide. But, I have NOT had the opportunity to ever actually compare them to each other.

Looking at some loose rounds I have here, the 30-06 and 8mm have the same OAL. This gives me hope. Since I am in Canada, ITAR prevents me from bringing a Yugo M76 mag in to try without coughing up big. I have converted several 1918 BAR mags to fit (PITA) and wonder if the Yugo mags drop right in.
