All the info you will ever need.
just a word of advice though bring a reliable AEG with you for the first few games as you find things that need to be replaced/fixed/tweaked. Oh and carry a bottle of locktite with your kit. Your gonna need it.
I carry a full loadout.. 300 rounds.. because in the games I play you can't carry loose ammo .. and you may not see your base for 5 hours.
Most of the games I play at have ammo limits of 300 rounds per sortie ... or sometimes 300 rounds total for the game..
Most the time I never go though all the ammo carried.. but sometimes I do Covering fire eats BBs fast...
3 or 4 mags are fine if you are running a RECCE and don't expect prolonged contact.. but if you are digging in to repulse assault.. or on the assault .. you will be counting rounds fast.
