To create these items, it will take 30 minutes and 5gp worth of materials for 6 standard rounds, 45 minutes and 10gp worth of materials for armor piercing, incendiary, and tracer rounds, and an hour and 15gp worth of materials for combined rounds or a standard magazine.

A LMG magazine can hold up to 30 rounds and can only be used for a light machine gun.
