    There is an enlarged mag release you can retrofit to you FAL, it makes the mag change even speedier.

    What is the best zero for an FAL? Is a 100yd zero more appropriate for this than a typical 50yd for an AR?

    I like a 200yd zero - that gives you a good "Battle Zero" - from 0 to 250yds you can aim center mass and hit 2". However, I do re-zero depending on what I expect to be doing.

    Can't quite remember my .308 ballistics, if I have access to 100yds, am I looking at about 1" low for a 200yd zero?

    I checked an on-line calculator and using a 150GR FMJ bullet @2800FPS if you zero @30Y that puts you on @200Y and about 1.8 high @100Y, YMMV.

    I only got 2548 fps out of Port ammo and my 18" barrel, which should put you 2.3" high at 100yds. Since the FAL is a 2-3 MOA gun though, if you zero close to 2" high at 100yds you'll be doing well.

    Here's another online ballistics chart.

    No problem - use the right index finger to actuate the mag release lever while the left hand is bringing a fresh magazine up. Most of my empties drop free when I hit the lever, but the left hand with the fresh mag can knock it forward and out very easily if they don't drop on their own. New mag goes in and rocks back to seat with the left hand, all while keeping the gun on target. It works almost as quickly as an IDPA reload.

    Of course - if you want to stow your empty mags that works the same way, just stow the empty with the left hand and then continue as above.
