Do you load 28 or 30 rounds in your magazines?

I am vision impaired. Sorry for wasting your time.

It's a 30 round magazine, thus I load 30 rounds. This is not difficult.

Not if you are using PMAGS, they load easily with 30rds on a closed bolt.

Ummm, you are completely missing the point. Paul probably has more experience than you do in this matter so to contradict him on this shows you haven't been to much. He is not discussing if it will hold 30 or not. It matters not if the PMag will physically hold 30 rounds. That is not the point. The point is that for a situation where you will be using the firearm to fight, to keep your magazines loaded to 28 rounds. The loss of two rounds is not as important as making the magazine 100% able to seat on a closed bolt. Murphy happens, and it is a time and tested procedure to ensure you will not have a problem seating under that circumstance.

It's like taping grenade pins- Sometimes you just do things because it's the safer way.

My point is there is no need to remove rounds from a mag when you don't need to. You are missing my point i think.

You proved my suspicion. You do not use one of these professionally. Load yours up to 30 on the range. Those that do carry these for their employment are exposed to reasons why they should download them 2 rounds. So yes, there is a need, one which you would find out if you did more with the weapon than the range.

You are entitled to your opinion, most of the people in this thread/poll seem to agree with me. We must all be range commandos.

Have you ever done a tactical reload under stress, or have stress induced on you?

Does it matter what people use? Which ever way works for people. I am in the 28rd mindset.

Yup, it's my opinion, based on education. Kinda funny how as soon as people that come up with strong reasons and stances for why 28 rounds is the best way to go, a new thread pops up...this is the 3rd one this week.

28 rounds and I like M4 feedramps. Opps, M4 ramps is Thursday's subject matter.

You missed my point. Have you ever taken any carbine/pistol classes? The instructors introduce stress when you are reloading by shouting or shaking you. If you have gear that is not 100% then you will have difficulty preforming tasks, while under stress.

I think that the point is do what is most comfortable for you. I don't think there is a right or wrong way, that is why I don't harp on the people who do it different than me. With GI mags I can see the point of doing 28rds but in PMAGS it is easy to load 30 and feel confident that there aren't going to be any hang ups during stress. To eash his own.

Have you ever had to point an AR-15 at someone who was debating whether they could "take you out" before you could end the situation? THAT is STRESS! A match or a carbine class will place stress on a shooter, but NOTHING like a possible life and death scenario. I load 28 rounds in my magazines no matter WHO makes them, and that includes P-Mags! It is easier to insert a magazine that is slightly downloaded than one at capacity. PLUS, if I haven't ended the situation with 28 Rounds what are the odds that two more will make a difference?
