It's not an exact measurement but it gets a little more precise once you get down to 20-25 rounds.

No, you aren't doing anything wrong. It's kinda like the fuel gauge in the car. When it gets down to tank, you really don't know exactly how much you have left.

The Lancer mag is a little more expensive. It is a hybrid design and has metal feed lips. I have one gun that doesn't always allow an empty mag to drop free, but it works all the time with the Lancer.

So far I only have one, but more are on the way. More testing to follow. PMAGs are great and have been my "go to" mag up to now. If the Lancer proves durable and reliable, I'm switching.
