Just try not to overlube the gun, or you'll get more jams from all the dust around there. A few drops in the chamber is good for a couple days.

That's a good load for most engagements, but I would suggest getting a few pouches to carry extra ones in the vehicle. If you can score some MOLLE magazine holders, I would suggest getting them, as you can fit six mags in there. I got what I call a "party pack", in which I have seven extra magazines. Sure there's aimed fire, but having spare mags either to quickly pull instead of what you're carrying, or you gotta lay down a GOOD base of fire mit burst (or if you got full auto, either way, the weapon will eat through your mags), you got an easy resupply, at least to hold you until you get somewhere friendly. I know it's stuff you allready know, but the smaller mags compared to the AK stuff makes the idea VERY good.
