It depends on the stage and what type of reload it is calling for. Unless tactical is required, the RWR is faster. I have my t-shirt tucked in so its easier to stick in my pants on the way to mag 2. Haven't had any fall out.

I was taught to leave partial in the weapon in case you have to abandon the RWR to defend yourself and need more than 1 round.

So I bring the weapon in, retrieve new mag, properly indexed, remove old mag between middle and ring finger, insert new magazine, stow old mag, and point in again.

I think doing a RWR would be very difficult on the move. I would suggest that a RWR really isn't meant to be fast (not that it must be super slow, either) and that it would be better to do it from cover.

If I'm moving and reloading, I'm doing a speed reload and just dropping the mag (I think). RWR too complicated to do while on the go.
RWR ot TR, they are essentially the same thing, either way you are keeping the partially spent mag. I usually shoot in cargo pants & the mag goes in the leg pocket. On the move is not a big deal, just depends on how coord you are & where you want to stow the mag. On the move, it usually goes in my pants pocket. At times moving behind cover, it's beneficial to RWR, you are not doing anything else anyway.

Wait What???? You shoot with Morgan and your asking us about RWR??? I've talked with him on FB and he seems to be a awesome person to talk to so I don't see why you wouldn't of ask him about it. Just saying.

I'm not nearly as high speed, low drag as a lot of IDPA shooters but I put the mag in my front left pocket. My mag pouches are at about 09:30 on my waste.

I shot a practice round last night a LGS and Morgan showed up, first time I was able to talk to him. He showed my his technique for the RWR, now to put it to practice.

He explained it like this:

When you stow your partial mag, point it down into your stomach at an angle a few inches above your waist in the center then drive it into your waist. Then slide your hand around sweeping your vest and index your fresh mag. Watching him do it make it look easy of course after some practice I should get it down pretty good but the technique did help.

The waist band thing seems to work well for the younger slimmer guys. It doesn't seem to be as popular with is older more filled out shooters.

I always stick the mag in my front pocket. It takes a fraction of a second longer and my hand is already positioned to grab the next magazine.

I have never done a Tac Load in a match. I have tested it and never found a situation I could do it faster than RWR. Even though with RWR you can move before stowing the mag, for me, I tend to not move as quickly and surely so don't really make up any time.

Well after trying in a Match it worked well except for the time I fumbled with the insert into waist part. I still shot to slidelock because it's the fastest, but if I had to move then the RWR worked well.

I'm Dillon so you can see the video's towards the bottom, stage 2 I fumbled with the RWR but stage 5 I had it down pat.
