Oh shame on you lol you just started the bullets forward vs bullets backwards debate.
So, when I carry vertically, I carry bullets forward. Some people say this is more intuitive, while others say it’s faster to carry them backwards, as carrying them forwards requires a slight rotation of your wrist.
I only mention that I carry bullets forward because I believe it is more intuitive having my index finger on the tip of the bullet in the magazine to be loaded. For that reason, if I were to carry with a horizontal magazine pouch, and being right handed, I would carry on my weak side, with the pouch approximately at 10 or 11 oclock. I woul carry with the top of the magazine towards my centerline and the bottom of the magazine towards my hip. My bullets would be facing down and I would grip in such a way that when drawing the magazine it would have a similar loading procedure as when I vertically carry.
That’s a long way of saying I agree with your thought process.
But that’s just my theory. I too am interested in the thoughts of others, which is why I asked. I really wouldn’t know what works for me until getting into a competition or a training class. Usually within a few minutes you realize, this will or won’t work.
