View Full Version : Speed loader for 10/22

05-21-2011, 9:17 AM
I would like to find a way to save my thumbs (and other fingers) when spending a day loading my Ruger 10/22 magazines. I understand there are some "speed loaders" out there that will make loading a little easier. I am using Ruger factory rotary mags. (The AlainGator tri-mag holder is great! I hope to get a second and 2 more mags and then I can have 60 rounds at my finger tips.)

So I am looking for your suggestions as to what has worked well. Best bang (or pop, since this is a .22LR) for the buck.

I tried to order the Butler Creek Model (turn the knob), they wouldn't ship to CA.

I have the butler creek quick loader
you can use it to load factory magazines but you have to rock the action back and forth to load the ruger mags
I like to use the butler creek 10 round mags, you can connect these together to form a star pattern
for the loader try amazon or bass pro if there is one near you.

I got my butler creek loader from Amazon, works great on my factory mags as well as my eagle mags.

Hmmm,, wonder if these would work with a CZ75 Kadet mag??

What's the secret? I've got 3 speed loaders and I can't get any of them to work. I even ordered one from Ruger. I'm going to have to try that first one. What the heck, it's only $9.

Opps. just read the description, "not for factory mags".

I just got the Butler Creek speedloader from MidwayUSA (it was on sale) and tested it on my Ruger rotary mags. It works fine even though it says it's not for use with non-BC mags. Just need to remember to stop after loading 10 rds into the mag.
