A mag is a cartridge that stores ammunition (ammo) for a firearm, such as an assault rifle (AR). Military personnel, gun enthusiasts, and gamers typically use the mag abbreviation.
An example of when you might see mag is when an FPS gamer laments losing a battle in CoD because their mag was out of ammo. Or, a soldier may complain about their gun jamming in a training exercise due to a poorly loaded mag.
