The ingenuity of people never ceases to amaze me
You still have to load the "speedloader".
I always chuckle at speedloaders. It's like handling the ammo twice. I could have had the gun loaded in the time it takes me to load the speedloader.

Yeah, but youz guys a being trouble makers and not mentioning you load the speed loader ahead of time.
I'll have several home made ones for 22 preloaded before going to the Appleseed shoot in August.
This old design as been around for along time. I made/had one about twenty years ago in 12 ga.
You could do the same thing for a 44mag by using Enfield .303 stripper clips.Originally Posted by quietman
The 44mag rim is .514 x .060, while the .303 is .540 x .064
I also see that Bianchi makes rubber speed strips for the 44 - see
Tuff products make speed strips in most shell sizes,they hold 5 or 6 sometimes more and
slide in a pocket with out a lot of noise..
Kinda neat AND Cheap. Even though u have 2 preload, as a self defense gun, this makes sense. You could disk out alot of very serious HURT in a short period of time. Think of it as a 50 yard ring of Fire or a backpack on the run. Although u might be mistaken 4 an organ grinder. Nothing wrong with a little precogin
That's not the same at all. LE stripper clips would be a handy way of carrying five rounds per clip, I'll give you that, but you'd still have to pop them out of the clip one at a time to feed them into the rifle in the normal way. The contraption above force feeds the rifle's tube with a tandem string of rounds, one after the other.Originally Posted by cowart
BTW, I have lots of .303 strippers in a box. I appreciate the tip on using them for holding .44s.

We need to support the rights of owners of "assualt rifles" and "high capacity magazines"
Otherwise our guns WILL be next!
The Henry 44 lever action rifle (16 rounds) The "assualt rifle" of the Civil war.
The Winchester 1873 (15 rounds) The "assault rifle" of the Indian wars.
The MARLIN 1894 (10 rounds) The "assault rifle" of 2013 New York gun laws.
DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO OPPOSE THE OBAMA GUN LAWS!
