I'm going on a 4-day pistol/carbine class. The consumption is estimated at 400 rounds long gun and 50-100 rounds handgun/day. My load is going to be 7 mags for the carbine and 4-5 mags for the handgun.

I'll have about 200 rounds for the carbine ready so i expect to be relaoding as the day progresses as opportunities present themselves. My intention is to carry my spare ammo in stripper clips and loose and to have a quantity on me at any one time. I'm looking for a suitable pouch/pouches to carry the loose and strippered ammo. The loose rounds are for topping up.

Will the Maxpedition M-1 do the business or is there something better?

keep loose pistol ammo in your pockets
with lightweight ammo requirements, you can top off when the rest of the lines breaks to top off

long gun ammo in an ammo can with an appropriate lula

Good choice putting funds toward personal training

Make sure to post a review after. Take a camera! You'll like having the pics.



I would recommend keeping loose ammo off your person and in a box/ammo can.

At any point you could dent a casing or push a bullet into its casing.

Not an issue in and of itself but it will cause feeding/extraction issues and bullet setback could cause pressure issues.

Just top off in between sessions.
