Ahhh....I am understanding more. So a "Real Cap Event" they would want actual "real cap" magazines and not just low caps loaded with the real cap amount of rounds.

Yes! ...and that's why I askd my original question about what happens during real-cap games and what is decided, cause there are sooo many variants of different weapons with differing Ammo capacities.

The idea is that it levels the playing field and no one has an advantage over another regardless of what type of weapon you can afford or have working at the time.
I see how giving everyone the same amount of ammo in a mag to be leveling the playing field in one sense, but it's still unfair in others. My P90 may have 20 more rounds in a mag but I can only carry so many since they're gigantic Toblerone bars.

I don't agree with the practice of limiting players to a maximum capacity per mag regardless of the weapon they are using.

This rule worked though it did not make consensus...
I understand what you're saying Dr. :-)

If that was the rule for an event I was attending I'd leave the P90 at home...and hopefully it was clearly explained before hand so I wouldn't be SOL when I arrived.
