To be honest, in the support role with a 'proper' support weapon or LMG, a 300 round high cap mag is extremely slow. It's much faster to dump 2 x 150 rounds or 3 x 100 round mid caps, even with the 1 to 2 mag changes than it would be to shoot and wind a tickler!
Why waste time mag tickling when in a support role? Your job is to put rounds down range so that your team can advance.
