Re: SpeedLoader.......I have one and I'm satisfied with it... there are different capacities, be sure to get the right one for your gun.

I have a Henry .22, so I bought a couple of spee-d-loaders from their website. Cost 15 bucks each and took just a couple of days to get to the house (although their website said up to 2 weeks). The ones I ordered have 8 chambers and hold 16 rounds each, so a total of 128 rounds. They do take a little getting use to, but not much, sometimes I have to shake it to get the rounds down the tube, but not really an issue. I have used mine quite a bit, and not once have I regretted getting them. I can do in a second what use to be a pain in the but. No more wasting time, unfortunately that makes me want to shoot more, which means I have to go hunt down these darn flippers and find some ammo.

Like I said, some kinks, and it takes me a minute each time to realize I have to load the ammo backwards, and I always hold it at an angle, because it just doesn't seem legit dropping round after round all the way down and striking the back; probably not an issue, but I am paranoid. Overall I would definitely recommend them.

I hope Spee-d- loader sends me a check for my advertising

I have one. They are "faster" in that you don't have to load individual rounds. If you have carpal tunnel or are in cold weather wearing gloves - they certainly make things easier than fumbling with one round at a time. As with all things - each has it's particular "use". :tee:

I constructed some homemade ones using lexan tubes and some plexiglas flat stock. It's the only way to fly when using tube fed .22 rifles.
I made a 17 and a 15 round ones to fit my rifles, and a 5 round one that you can put in a jacket pocket. The 5 round one has 10 tubes and holds 50 rounds. You just rotate it 3 times to fill the mag tube.

I use speed loaders in all my 22's.
I use this one for my Buckmarks
Amazon.com: Ultimate Clip Loader: Sports & Outdoors

It works great and sure sometimes it only loads 9 rounds instead of 10.
But other than that it's lightning quick.
I really need to buy one for my wife so that we have 2 of them.

Dump in 50 rounds or so close cover, shake and the rounds line up then
insert mag and it's done!

I had a different one for loading my Ruger 10/22's but I sold the guns
and the loader.

Oh sorry, I mistook the tube fed one for the magazine loader.
sorry about that.

Yes the ones you are looking at are cool.

You can buy an extra funnel and make the same tube loader work for front and rear (e.g., Browning BA-22) loading tube fed rifles.

Should be pretty easy to make something similar...
