In general a 30rd. The 5rd and the 10rd work great for bench shooting. 20rd work better if you are shooting from prone or any confined spaces that make larger magazines awkward to use. But there are very few places and positions that couldn't be worked with by using a 30rd. Bigger is just heavier, less reliable and less maneuverable. I would like to hear about 40rd magazines from folks that use them alot.

While I have a few of all different types of magazines, I personally use 30 round mags. Being able to maneuver in tight spaces, with less weight hanging (on my rifle) is preferable. Plus, if I suffer a magazine failure, the most I may be out is 30 rounds..

I have all sizes 5rd, 10rd, 20rd, 30rd, 40rd, & the worse 2 60rd magazines. I only have 4 each of the 40rd mags and use them as little as possible. They are metal, heavy, and awkward. The increase the weight of the rifle considerably. The only time I use the 40's is when I am shooting a rifle competition against multiple targets at different types of cover and distances. As to the 2 60 round mags, I thought they would work better than they do. Functionality they are good, but even though they are polymer 60 rounds of 5.56' s are heavy. Loading them is also a LARGE PAIN IN THE BUTT! After 40 rounds the other 20 will ware your thumb raw! I do not recommend these mag at a cost of $60 each.

If you vote Democrat in November it won't matter. You'll eventually get them all taken away.

20 rd is my fav for the size and a box of ammo is 20 rounds. The smaller mag makes storing or pocketing easy as well as handling of the rifle easier and in semi auto, 20 rounds is plenty for my needs. so I pass on the 30 rd mags and buy 20 rd .

20 rds. when I'm prone I want to be low as possible. works better with my bipod and I don't worry about bouncing the mag on the ground(causes jams). they fit in bandoleer pockets. I have 30s in my vest for other positions but prone with 20 is my preferred

10 round magazines are great for load development. 5 round magazines are even better, because you load them and don't have to think about how many rounds you fired. Prevents accidentally firing the next powder charge.

Practice? 10 rounds. Self-defense? 30. Several of them.
