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.
