Milsig Mag Test



I wanted to know what the maximum feed rate for any given Milsig magazine was, so I devised an experiment to do so.

The basic idea is that I put a magazine on the floor of my bathroom and recorded how fast it took a mag to empty.

Here are the specifics:
Rounds in mag: 18
Feed position: horizontal
Frames per second recorded: 60
Time measured = (Time last ball completely left the mag) - (Time first ball began to move)
Number of mags used: 3
Trials per mag: 3



Results:

Average feed rate = 95.2 bps

This is obviously not the real world feed rate, but gives a good measure of how fast the balls are being shoved out of the mag.
