I made the switch to all 20' a little while back. Any good ways to carry these? Im thinking they may fall too deep into a pouch designed for a 30

Well for 20's....they're in my pockets. If I'm still using my 20's I haven't gotten to the pouches or rigs yet.

You could use the shallow single mag pouches, the ones that are designed to come about halfway up a 30rd mag.

A number of companies make pouches designed for 20-round magazines.

I'd start here: Tactical Tailor Modular Ammunition Pouches

I admit I'm biased as the factory store is only 20 minutes away.

Twenty round 308 double mag pouches work well for two Pmags w/ ranger plates.

Brownells and Galati both sell shoulder bags made specifically for six 20 round magazines.

When I carried a MK12 spr I used 20 rd mags in 30 rd pouches, I would put a 1st aid dressing in the bottom of each pouch to raise the mag, and this would also give me more 1st aid dressings in my kit.

Here's a thought... keep running your same rig and pouches. Just insert a little bit of closed cell foam or styrofoam wrapped in 100mph tape into the bottom of your pouch, trim it to fit tight and you won't have any issues.

Closed cell foam is what I use. Ranger plates help also and reduce the amount of foam you need.
