That’s what I was talking about, if I had multiple calibers I’d mark the mags with the caliber, color coded to the rifle and placed in a box with the caliber on the box in the same color as the marking on the gun.On a range trip I check to make sure they match, the 5.56, 300Blk and 277WLV are similar, so they are labeled in their boxes, and I use green mags for 5.56, black for 300Blk, and Tan for my 277WLV. In an emergency, just grab a case and go, they are already matched there.
That’s what I was saying. I guess I’m not just smart enough to know which one is which when I don’t see them often enough.That’s actually one of the problems I ran into with having a Ruger American in both 17 HMR and 22 Mag, both topped with the same scopes. They even use the same magazines. I had to really watch what I grabbed because I had Hornady VMax bullets for both...both of which are red tipped too. I sold the 17 and kept the 22 Mag but I had to look closely before heading out when I had both.
I don’t handle or see my guns every day like I would drive my vehicle or see kids. My guns stay in the safe 99.9% of the time. That wasn’t a very good comparison IMO.
