Working on an idea with East.

Do you use P-mags, or steel mags more? If you were going on a hot hunt with it, would you have a spare or spares of 20 round, or 10 round?

GO!

Pmags and 10 rd. 10 rounders protrude less and slightly lighter, depending on situation 2 or 3 extra as needed. Do the same with my 6.5CM gas gun.

I don't have a preference when hunting. I just grab a mag out of my bag and go. I usually bring a few spare mags with me and they are usually 25 round P-mag. I currently have a 20 round dpms mag loaded for next trip.

But twenties mean 10 more hogs shot before a Mag change. grin

Filled up they are pretty heavy, though. I think with the adrenaline flowing it won't really matter.

Can anyone really get more than 10 shots off accurately?

Especially someone that has serious demons with ARs? bolt

25 round mags mean 15 more!

I like 10 round pmags for the smaller foot print and weight.

I use Stoner 10 rd steel mags mostly, but have a case of 20 rd P mags.

Is weight really an issue? I guess if I was 60+ years old, weight might be an issue. When scouting/stalking or just walking the ranch, I carry single point sling and I can't tell the difference in 25 round mag or 10. If shooting is a problem with the extra 10-15 rounds, get to the gym.

For multiple hogs on one sit, I prefer something manually operated.
I've found 3 rounds is sufficient. whistle
