So, you know how to do a speed reload with your AR 15 and get rounds in
there quick after running out. Now there's a pause in the action and you
want to make sure you have enough ammo before moving on to slay those
zombies, terrorists, bed intruders, whatever. What do? Chris Costa shows
you how to top off your AR 15 with what is called a "tactical" reload.
As always, if you're doing this at a range, please follow all range rules and basic firearm safety rules at all times.
Here it is broken down:
Grab the rear-most magazine from the rear-most magazine pouch of
whatever gear you have on with your support hand (chest rig, belt,
2.) Brace the new magazine horizontally against the bottom of the loaded magazine, forming a 90 degree angle or an L.
Press the magazine release button and remove the old magazine, turning
your support hand over so that the new magazine is vertical and ready to
be loaded. Load the new magazine, giving it a quick tug to make sure
it's locked in.
4.) Store the old magazine into your rear-most
magazine pouch. If you have time, move your magazines forward so that if
you need to reload, you automatically grab the magazine with the most
rounds in it. In case you screw up and grab a different magazine, worry
later: just keep going without pausing.
