Can anybody help a brother out who is imprisoned in the draconian state of NY with some pre-ban mags?  
I picked up a Sig 556 recently.  My first rifle of this type.

Check the Equipment Exchange. There's usually lots of listings for P/B's.

My goal was to have 1000rds of 5.56mm loaded at one time. I exceeded that and didn't realize it.



34 - 5.56mm PMags
5 - 5.56mm EMags
21 - 5.43x39mm AK74 mags
13 - .303 Brit Bren mags


...And a bunch of other types for other weapons.

Looks great.

Question:  Why is the top round in some of your mags on the right and some on the left?

Obvious Answer:  They have a different number of rounds in them?

Is there not 800 rounds there?

Just curious.  



Left side means an odd number of rounds, right side means an even number. A lot of people leave the mag one round short of full so it's easier to seat on a closed bolt.

Don't worry.  You'll get there.  If you've ever been burned by the '94 ban, you'll get there.  And if you haven't, you'll get burned soon enuf to know better.

Does anyone use a ratio of number of mags / rounds of ammo? I was wondering how many rounds through a magazine would be the usefull life, so to speak, as well. When you start out with another platform llike me, you don't want to have 10,000 rounds of ammo and 1 magazine for example.  As you are building your "stash" and practice mags how many for practice? How much do you put into ammo stash vs ammo for practice? Thanks.

ammo is only as good as the magazine it is in.. i dont think there is a science to it. Just get what you can afford then what you cant or dont want to load into magazines put the rest of the ammo on stripper clips. You can buy them online. I have sets of 50 - 100 with 1 - 2 chargers listed in the EE ammunition section. I love stripper clips and a striplula. So easy to slam 10 at a time in a mag. I reload, so I just stick them on stripper clips and store them in a ammo can or in bandos... I have about 30 mags usgi and pmags and reload up to 2-3k at a time. take care

Same here.  While there have been posts about the StripLULA versus USGI, versus PMags, and versus Lancers, I don't see any notable or significant difference in operation or functionality with using the StripLULA on a USGI, PMag, or Lancer.  Seems to me its more personal technique and how handy the operator is with the StripLULA (than the brand/type of mag) that's the determining factor.  Sorry no pics brotherzoo.  (Or were you referring to pics of something else?)

I wouldn't say I am a mag whore, I just have sufficient for my needs.

30 - 30rd Magpuls
40 - 30 Rd GI (Center, Colt, Labelle)
10 - 20 rd Magpul
10 - 20 rd GI
5 - HK maritime
5 - D&H curved 20 rd
10 - 20 rd 308 Magpul
20 - BDM .22 mags
50 - Glock Mags for G19,23,35
20 - Browning Buckmark Mags

My main reason for having them is because I hate to reload them at the range.  I use the extra AR mags for storage.

116 thirty-rd USGI mags stamped Okay, Colt, or NHMTG with Okay's CAGE code, all with MagPul followers.  

94 twenty-rd USGI mags, a mix of Colt, Adventureline, and Simmons Industries manufacture.

Two thirty-rd USGI FN mags that I somehow obtained and can't recall how, with MagPul followers installed.

No plastic mags of any kind.

The USGI 30s with MagPul followers have been 100% stone cold reliable for me after 1000s of rounds of cumulative shots fired in four ARs.  That includes MagPul followers of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generations.  NOT. ONE. FAILURE.

The USGI 20s are nice for benchrest work, and they are intrinsically reliable.

Works for me, YMMV.
