    2012-08-06 10.46.19.jpgThis is what i had in mind. Two tubes together. Holds 32 rounds. Pill tubes on the end just cut the ends off and fit them on the tube.

    i may take my old inner mag tube and try something with it. i'll also hit up the hardware store and hobby shops to find the correct diameter brass tube. with brass tube, all you do to make the fixed end in cut a small length of rod that fits in the tube and solder it in place. for the cap, i'll probably just use tape until i find something more substantial. $10 plus solder and you have at least 2 18 round tubes plus a couple mag top-off tubes.

    people always point out that the second amendment says nothing about hunting. i like to point out that it says nothing about need.

    Great idea, 01Sporty! That's a new one. Thank you.

    I still have about a million of those rubber caps btw, if anyone wants some.

    Wow, $0.83 for 48" long, and .028 id. I'd say that's cheap. I'll have to look into that.

    I thought someone had already posted this as an idea, so I didn't even think of it, but looking back I see that no one has.

    For hunting/camping/SHTF and the like drinking straws look like a great way to do it. You just seal up the ends of the straws with a cigarette lighter and a needle nose pliers (or hemostats, or a big molly clip). I like this idea because 1. it's watertight, so if you take a spill into the drink your ammo at least will be OK. 2. cut to length to fit your storage space. 3. airtight so it will last an awful long time. 4. semi rigid, so they should pour right out. 5. So easy to do.

    I did a little DIY post on sealing up some fire starters in drinking straws, but you'd do the same thing for ammo. I know I already linked to it in another thread. I'm not trying to be a post whore, I just like it when people link to relevant info. It helps when people from the future are trying to research something that people from the past have already documented. It would be really nice if the people from the future would return the favor once in a while though.

    Thanks 01Sporty. I was getting ready to order the Spee-d-loader 15 for my 60 when I found your input. Just placed the order for 10 tubes and 100 caps for $12.36 plus shipping. That will give me 30 tubes after cutting. Appreciate your input.

    I've seen many speedloaders, but the ones that hold 14 rounds in a single tube look too long for me, and the ones that consist of vinyl tube are too bendy.
    2 vinyl tubes glued together (each holding 7 rounds) look better because it is much more compact, transparent and won't shatter like the ones made of hard plastic.
    Made 8 today, all work fine. Cost of 8 speedloaders: $4-5 for tubing + some rubber glue + some duct tape + 1/4 of windshield wiper rubber part (I cut it and use pieces as plugs).
