"So now we advocate scavenging ammo?"
You bet your assets you scavenger ammo when you are running low. Ammo that has been pole beaned can be picked up by either sidse. I would rather take my chances with ammo picked up off the field than an empty magazine.

I guess so, but I would much rather carry enough of my own. You point is well made though; kinda difficult to get close enough to knock them in the head with your empty magazine.

One of the tactics used by the SEAL TEAMS in RVN was to put a charge of c-4 in anAK47 magazine about ten rounds down. When it hit a trip switch after en rounds were fired the charge of C4 detonated. There is another reason for this and a good one.

I would posit this is for sustained ops deep in Indian country using captured ammunition for resupply when our own resupply channel is not available. This is not for when resupply is merely a call home to get more ammo delivered.
