DBM vs hinged floor plates?

    For a long range hunting, utility, and training standpoint when would you prefer a system that accepts AICS mags over a quality hinged floor plate?

    I understand the obvious that the DBM may be more prone to getting released and lost. The hinged floorplate generally holds fewer rounds but is less prone to getting snagged. With the DBM it is quicker to just do a mag change than try to top off the hinged mag box. What else am I missing or forgetting?

    I have heard that in 300WM the AICS single stack 5rd mags tend to be more reliable than a factory staggered mag box and hinged floorplate? Does anyone have any real work experience with this?
