    One fell out from behind my ear earlier and I'd forgotten I put it there at the range.
    Pocket ftw.
    Looks silly by my keys and money clip, but that's the best place for it.

    well thats not the +1..

    the +1 is when you load the mag full, put mag in gun, chamber top round, take mag out, and replace the one thats now in the chamber.

    hence, when a mag capacity is 13 rounds, the gun capacity will be 13+1

    You didn't read what I said. I don't use the whole +1 bullshit because I unload my pistol and dry fire it so much that I end up losing the extra round that won't go back in the mag. So I just load the mag to capacity, and chamber from that mag. The chambered round goes back in the mag.

    EVERYONE needs to keep in mind that if you chamber the same round more than about 5-6 times in some pistols, the bullet will get shoved back into the casing. The result is sometimes catastrophic if you rechamber that same round all the fucking time. You get WAY too high a pressure in the casing/chamber, and could cause a KB. Cycle out your re-chambered rounds, or just insert them into the chamber by hand, then release the slide. It's the action of hitting the feedramp that shoves the bullet back into the casing.

    You'll find that with hotter loads, like carry loads, this becomes a serious issue. You can tell a difference betwixt a round that's be rechambered from the magazine 10 times and a fresh round of the same type. The fresh one isn't nearly as hot, and the 10-timer is dangerous.

    Well, if that's the case, I'm sure if you stand 2 side by side, and can see a difference in height.

    i just keep 30 rounds in my AR mag. if i need it, i'll chamber a round. the sound alone would probably deter an intruder.

    I have never read anything but internet hype and bullshit to back up the "sound will scare off an intruder" theory. If anything, it lets the guy know you're there, where you're at, and that he needs to shoot you before you shoot him. Why not just clear your throat really loudly? If you have to scare him away, you're not in the right mindset to defend yourself.


    And yes, sometimes you can tell a noticeable difference when you compare two rounds after one has been rechambered many times. Most people, however, don't think to look. And I don't know loading that well, so I'm not going to risk guessing at how much overseating makes my carry loads potential KB's. If it's been rechambered 6 times from the magazine, I shoot it. More than that, I throw it away. I just avoid the problem by manually inserting it into the chamber and then releasing the slide.

    chambering a round isn't going to overseat it, except maybe the first time you do it, and assuming you have either no crimp, or a weak crimp.

    Sorry buddy, but this is a known problem. No matter how tight a bullet is crimped, not counting too much crimp, the bullet will move if impacted enough. This depends a lot of the gun and ramp angle, with how much force it places on the bullet when chambering. For that reason I do the same as the other poster. I only chamber a bullet a few times before I stick it part way down the magazine and chamber a new round.

    Wow, this thread is :greddy:

    Load mag up, chamber, drop mag, put another bullet in to top it off. The "+1" is pretty redundant, considering whatever your mag already holds, you can have 1 more in the chamber, ready to go.. common sense.

    Why in the fuck would you chamber a round multiple times?

    Its not that difficult with the +1 round.

    1. Insert full magazine.
    2. Pull slide back.
    3. Remove magazine.
    4. Add another round to magazine.
    5. Put magazine back in gun.
    6. Pull trigger.
    7. Enjoy extra shot.

    No round gets chambered twice. Don't chamber it by dropping it in the chamber.

    Because SOME people actually utilize all aspects of firearms training. One of which is dry firing. Dry firing, by definition, does not include a round in the chamber. Since I actually carry my blaster in a condition in which it is ready to be used, dry firing requires removing the spare round from the chamber. In order to get back to that ready condition, a round has to be loaded BACK into the chamber. I'm not in the habit of just throwing away my carry loads, so at some point, the round that came out of the chamber is going to go back in, which could be called "chambering a round multiple times." If the round repeatedly strikes the feedramp, the issue of deep-seating the bullet and overpressurization comes into play, hence all this mess. Try to wrap your noggin around that concept before asking another stupid question.
