In combat with a AR such as the M16 what would be the best mag ammo setup for prolonged combat? this includes how many mags, what size mags, stripper clips, battle packs etc...

??? how long is this battle, are you bunkered down or mobile, did you cache in several spots to restock, is there a route to resupply you or do you have to pick-up off the dead your question can not really be answered as you leave to many varibles open.

Scarecrow, if you don't have any buddies or friends that would be part of your anti SHTF defense plan I suggest you have 20 loaded 30 round mags. It is unlikely you would survive long enough to exhaust your ammo without support. In military units soldiers have support personal to keep them supplied with the necessities of combat. You will not have that luxury. Any thing you have you will have to provide yourself at your own expense. You will have different needs depending on your location rural, urban, wilderness, etc..

Rural area, this is for a gunfight vs 10 - 15 individuals. your team is comprised of at least 2 men excluding yourself. enemy is heavily armed and you have access to one car for possible ammo resource.

2 men with standard battle loads of 7 to 12 30rd mags the 3rd of your party should play God by giving you details of where your enemy is located & to sniper them every chance he gets. using F/A's you'll need atleast 3 to 6 mags more per person. as you'll get caught up in the heat of battle and will be doing alot more spray&pray then controlled shot[heavy]

I said for a military engagement, not my own, and anyway if I was going to be needing this kind of firepower I could just go over the border and buy some. PS: Canadian criminals don't have limited mags just like in the US criminals don't have registered machine guns.
