Just looking for a few tips regarding carrying LMG ammunition? Whats the best ways people have found to carry the link? Webbing/manbag etc.
They are quite good actually - they are designed for 5.56mm belt and they work. You lob the rest in your daysack - It ain't ******* rocket science. Adapt your carriage to suit your circumstances.Yea good one... I mean whats the best methods people have found carrying the extra ammo outside of the soft pouches on the weapon system. loose in webbing pouches, day sack etc.
Worked well for me on Herrick 6, though I admit I only wore a belt around my body when I was expecting to be in a position where I would need quick access to more link without having to go in my daysack.If I were you I'd quickly run for cover with a comment like that.
You're about to open a whole can of worms, the its Ally, is bad drills etc argument will kick up now.
Apart from being a secondary shrapnel risk, also allows the ammo to collect unwanted dust and debris while patrolling.
I personally think it looks gash.
No possibly not but is it worth introducing it into the mix, the last thing you want is stopages you could prevent just when you need that rate of fire.I never had any stoppages due to shit or dust on the link, though i appreciate the secondary frag issue now, Herrick has changed alot over the last couple of years.
