Re: Do you prefer a hunting rifle with a detachable mag?

Nope. I've seen a DM go "bombs away" and there's little utility in that for me. They're great for truck hunters who want to jump out and ram a mag into the rifle so they can shoot, but I've never found myself wanting to do that. A Floorplate works fine for me or a blind mag (ADL style). Plus there's always the chance the mag goes missing on you. No chance of that happening with a floorplate. The ADL style is the most bombproof - no chance of it springing open after the first shot.

Honestly, the magazine style is the last thing I worry about. But if all three were available in the rifle I was looking to buy I'd probably choose the Floorplate, then the Blind Mag and finally the DM.

    Down Here in Australia we also must not have any ammunition in a rifle whilst in a motorised vehicle on public roads.
    In all the years I have been hunting I have never found it to hard to just dump the rounds from the floorplate into my hand. If a quick reload is needed it is easy to just push the rounds into the magazine from the top whilst walking to where ever you wish to be to hunt.

    Hinged floor plate every time for me.

    I prefer the DM on my Rem 700 .280. It is convenient, and allows for quick clearing of the rifle. Drop the mag, pull the cartridge in action.

    On all of my builds except the Mausers I use the HS mags. Trick is to make sure the Sminth knows what they are doing otherwise if not fitted correctly it may drop during recoil when loaded. The empty magizine will not fall out nearly as easily as a loaded one.

    Since the question was to preference I had to vote no, however I own both and like both. I don't "prefer" any of them. I'll take em all.

    Never!!! If my head wasn't attached I would forget it some where. A detachable mag would get lost. No detachable mags for this guy.
