    Not sure I ever tried a gen 3. Really I probably have only put a 30 in my guns for live fire a handful of times in the past 10 years. Mostly run Colt/NHMTG 20s. I should get up off the shooting mat more often.

    You're already running the best mags IMHO, and stay low like a country boy.

    It's funny. Pappabear thinks the USGI 20s aren't good a locking back on his suppressed ARs. I'm thinking... it aint the mag's fault.

    I find the 30's to be perfect monopods when shooting prone.

    40's are great for that with armor on.

    I have really embraced the mag-as-a-monopod TTP lately, it works extremely well.

    I would probably choose the new Lancer L5AWM *Gen 2* mags over this new and improved VLTOR mag and will probably pick up 6 or 7 of the Gen 2 20rd mags when they become available in June.

    Excellent way to get a solid zero on your gun.

    I bag it for zero, and kinda frown upon the “mag pod”, but does POI really wander from POA when using this technique?

    Bagging is better, but you won't get a bag in the military, and I've never detected any shift. Try it yourself sometime, it will produce a solid zero on a rack grade M4 with mil spec ammo, and mil spec fire control, an Acog or M68, working guns not precision outfits.

    According to all the CMP "experts" I know, this is the actual problem, certainly isn't their shooting ability. Hell they won't even load a mag, they single load each round to keep consistent pressure on the bolt.
    It's hard to be a ACLU hating, philosophically Libertarian, socially liberal, fiscally conservative, scientifically grounded, agnostic, porn admiring gun owner who believes in self determination.

    Chuck, we miss ya man.

    No, I've only shot this way out to 250 yards so far, but no discernible shift.

    I consider it a "hurry up, get down & shoot" field position, and use bags front and rear when actually zeroing optics or irons, but yes, I've been surprised at how well it works, and how stable it makes prone unsupported.

    And the old wives tales about it causing reliability issues were just that.
