It wasn't in any manuals, but during the Vietnam War everyone "knew" that you had to download 20 round magazines to 18 rounds.

Some genuine multiple tour combat vets said that in their experience it was the truth, and in some units riflemen were ordered to download the 20 round mags.

Whether a 20 round mag needed to be downloaded to 18 rounds or not, it's rather difficult to argue with some guy with three tours under his belt as a combat infantryman or a Special Forces SOG vet when they tell you it's so.
