    Should I buy MAG 130 round mid caps for my Well M4 or GB 300 round high caps, they are the same price.

    Your going to get both sides of the story on mags. Think about how you play and what will fit your playing style better.

    Pros of hicaps

    - Hold more ammo per mag
    - Dont need a speedloader

    Cons of hicaps

    - Rattle ( can possibly give position away )
    - You have to wind it and that can get annoying

    Pros of midcaps

    - No winding
    - Feels more realistic
    - No rattle

    Cons of midcaps

    - Need a speedloader to fill them
    - hold less ammo

    Imo ive tried both and found hicaps to be more convienent. Winding the mag is a pain but its much better than filling the speedloader and then filling the mag.
    Also where I play its fast paced action and hicaps are just easier to use. I tried midcaps but filling the speedloader and then the mag and then the speedloader was just a pitta that I sold them and got hicaps.

    Like I said above, Think about where you play and how you play and then decide.
    We cant choose for you because it comes down to personall prefrence. What I like isnt necisarily what the guy standing next to me does. Hope this helps

    My, admittedly rather odd, preference is starting with one high-cap in the gun and swapping out for the mid caps when things get low. Why? Not sure actually. I think it's just because I got a bunch of high-caps free and I just want to use them until they break.

    Though that aside, I would just go with mid caps. And, well, i'm positive that's what near everyone else will say too. They're just nifty.

    I hate winding high caps but they are more useful to me than mid caps. thats just in my opinion.

    I completely agree. High caps don't feed quite as well, and many Mil sim events won't allow you to use them. Having the random high cap helps when trying to do something with your gun, such as break in a barrel, but I wouldn't game with them. And I find it more fun having to reload a lot!
    What's even the point of having multiple high caps, much less one you use in a game?

    Can you provide details and experience on this matter please? I think it would helpful to the Thread author...

    In my experience I found midcaps to be the best because there is no rattle, I wasn't hit several times because no one herd bbs rattling around to give me away.
    They are a pain to load but, I would just buy a very large speed loader to combat this.

    Rattling has never been a reason to not use high caps for me, I simply hate how you can carry more ammo than you will need for a single firefight in one mag. To me it is compatible in feeling to baking a cake from scratch, and buying a pre measured cake kit. Both are good and satisfying, but the one you worked hard on(being mid caps) is a bit more enjoyable. Or perhaps that's just my culinary side.

    Then he'll either have to get more money, have a use for either one if he decides on one, or decide...

    None, flash mags feed every single BBC all you have to do is wind for 5 seconds.

    Get low caps, those are the most realistic.

    That in no way means that they are better
