I've switched my M4 to midcaps this past spring - 5x120 rounds at present. I got tired of the tactical maracas, and noobie time was over. I'm in the process of switching fully over to midcaps on my M14 and still have yet to deal with my Mp5 .. but that's a loaner gun i've yet to personally field in a year.
I must confess though - I haven't entirely
abandoned hi-caps. I still fill one up for the M4 and put it in my pouch. An emergency back-up, if you will. Stuffed full, it doesn't rattle, if it isn't used. I've gone to it twice in the past year of skirmishes.
Saves me from having to go back to the staging area, mid game.
