Can I use P-mags ?

J/k

What Is your go to magazine length ? I looks like the 20 rounders are the magazine of choice, just wanted to make sure before I order. The majority of my shooting will be on the bench or prone, both with a bi-pod.

20.GTG

I shoot mine with a sling, and thats lower than a bipod. You will be fine.

I use 20's since they fit and I always forget that I have a 10 rounder that came with the rifle . 25's are just a little too long for prone even with a bipod.

I use 20's but I do a lot of run and gun. For prone I use 15's. 10's are fine but they are really too short as they barely extend past the mag well.

20's are fine for shooting from prone but if you have to change mags they are a pain.

I like the 15 and 25ers. I enjoy the heft of the 25ers, and the 15 just feels nice and slick. Not too much, not too little. Easy mag changes compared to the 10s. Thats my personal preference.

I use 20's, I have one 25 but find it a bit long for prone or bench shooting.

I guessing the P mag thing is a joke....

I have several 20s but I usually use my 10 rounders just to make it easier to maneuver on the bench...and it save on ammo...
I don't get nuts on the trigger....

For bench and prone I like the 20's. The 10's are OK but can be a real pita to remove sometimes. I have a few 25's for gaming.


And yes, Pmags fit fine, buy a dozen.

Our most popular Gen II mags are the 20 rounders followed by the 25, 10, 5, and 15. For bench shooting the 10 or 15 would be best but still some prefer the 20 rounders. 5 rounders for hunting and 25 round mags are great capacity wise when too many rounds is not enough.

100 round drum would be great for deer hunting! Wouldn't have to change mags so dang often!

I'm glad there is a lot of real-estate between us.

I use the 20s as well. 20 round mags just seem to have the perfect feel for a 308 rifle. Maybe its cause all my other ones are the same way..my mag fed 308s...

I need a few 5 rounders though...maybe Armalite will have another sale on these soon...

Seriously, I almost always use 10 round mags. I have a thin barrel carbine I hunt with and a precision rifle I only shoot handloads in. So 10 works fine. I have some 20s I'm saving for zombies.

I'm planing on doing another tracer video like my last one. Shooting at the camera. Only this time it will be bigger and better! Will be in HD!

I'll shoot more 556 and add some 762 tracers. I'll use 20 rounders for that. And the distance will be farther.
