    I thought it was a “spectrum”. I like it both ways.

  2. R. Finkle says:

    Laces out!

  3. JS says:

    Beer can grip!

  4. Hubb says:

    Pistol mags = bullets forwards
    Rifle mags = bullets backwards

  5. St says:

    Pistol mags – MUST be bullets forward
    Rifle mags – either works. I prefer bullets forward.

    My opinion.

  6. Joe says:

    Bullets forward.

  7. Gavin says:

    Forward? Back? Bullets to the right (I’m a lefty).

  8. JKifer says:

    im a righty, I put pistol mags bullet forward (facing my rifle, so that when I reload them my finger is indexing them to the magwell). I put rifle bullets backwards due to how I grab my mags and conduct my magchanges…

  9. CapnTroy says:

    Bullets towards weapon…rifle or pistol

  10. Lasse says:

    Depends on the placement of the pouch because that determines how I grab the magazine.

  11. SLG says:

    Doesn’t matter in the least for rifle mags. What matters is where you carry them and how mobile your arm is.

    The fact some people still beer can their reloads scares me

  13. DSM says:

    These political debates are so polarizing.

  14. BillC says:

    I’ve seen it both ways, at the same time.

  15. Tom says:

    This was obviously posted by those who prefer battle belts…..

    On the day I wuz leavin home, my Dady sat me down and said, “son, there are three kinds of people in this world, those who count, and those who can’t”.

  17. Coastie says:

    Pistol mags- Forward
    Rifle mag on belt- Backwars
    Rifle mags on vest/pate carrier- Forwards

        I have to ask. Who sets and enforces these bullet “rules”?

        Shouldn’t “bullet orientation” depend on where the magazine is mounted on the body, what type of pouch / retention system is being used and personal ergonomics and preferences?

        And shouldn’t an individual experiment and figure out what works best for themselves? If it works it isn’t stupid. right?

        So are there really only two types of people?

        And why do “beer can” reloads scare contractor?


  18. Paul says:

    Pistol mags: Bullets fwd (indexed)
    Rifle mags: Bullets backward (beer can)

    I have small hands so while I can comfortably index pistol mags I can’t grip rifle mags confidentlly the same way, so I use the “beer can” grip.

  19. TexasKrypteia says:

    I was born a bullets forward dude, but I self identify as bullets backward.

    • Reaper45 says:

      Haaaa Haaaa. Good to see you identify correctly.

    • tm says:

      What about those of us who like it both ways? Or neither? That being said SSD’s dichotomy did not specify whether this involves reloading AR or AK mags, for those of us who swing both ways…

  20. Cy says:

    I think this thread should be shut down. It’s not politically correct to make one choose a magazine orientation. I would hope SSD would want to remain magazine orientation neutral so as not to create a hostile environment that offends others. This only creates social anxiety in which operators are forced to seek out safe areas in which they can fully explore there true magazine orientation without prejudice..

    Obama doesn’t discriminate against orientation!
