The file can be downloaded from the Strelok website directly. I downloaded it yesterday and the file appears to be complete. It is already installed on my phone so I did not install it again.
I like to have 6 for each pistol, 5 for my .22 rifle, and at least 10 - 30 rounders for each 5.56 AR. I also prefer 20 round mags in the AR because it allows you to shoot from the prone position easier than with a 30.
For my surplus pistols, at least 3 mags.
All plated bullets are not created equal. Berry's plated bullets are usually able to be loaded using the same charge as a comparable FMJ bullet.
Always check the manufacturer's load data for plated bullets.
I generally keep lots of brass sorted and ready to load, but do not pre-prime any of it. Brass is clean, sized, checked for length, before being stored.
Using a Lee single stage press, priming cases can be done easily during the loading process, and takes only a few seconds per case.
If the slide is forced back when the pistol is placed into the holster, it either is the wrong holster, or it is not properly broken in.
Until the pistol goes in and out normally, I would not use it for carry.
Just make sure that if you are loading to 5.56 pressures that you do not shoot them in a .223 marked barrel.
The cases are identical, the main difference is chamber free bore with 5.56 being about twice as long as .223.
Here are a couple of pics of a Glock mag locked into the adapter.
Looks about the same to me. Yours may be slightly higher.
What type of BCG cut do you have. Sounds like it is not cut right for the mags you want to use if it is hitting the adapter.
I have used EndoMags with good results, but switched to a Stern Defense adapter to work with Glock mags.
Neither system had any problems like you are experiencing. My build is direct blowback and has a hybrid cut(works with Glock or Colt style mags) BCG. I am unfamiliar with the CMMG system...
My AR-9 pistol with a 10.5" barrel was built for a specific purpose, and works as intended. It is zeroed @ 100 yards and using 124 grain, 1150 FPS loads results in an arc of about 3-1/2" from barrel to target. I have been very pleased with it's accuracy within that distance, especially when...
To each, his own.
There is no right or wrong choice, IMO. As conditions change, choices may evolve. Factors vary for everyone, making this something that most have considered in detail, and reevaluate regularly.
I see no need for me to carry a backup of any kind. It would only be needed in the...
