Default Tube fed .22 speed loader

Don't know if this has been posted before but I thought it was a neat idea.
I took a couple of old aluminum arrows without points and cut them in 13" lengths. They will hold 12-13 long rifle cartridges. Just drop them in bullet first and then cap with a rubber cap from the auto parts store. Then when you run dry just tip the fresh rounds into the feed tube.
(Since I retired I have WAY too much free time and not near enough money. LOL)

Not a bad idea AP. I just wish I could come up with a use for all the 6 inch cut-offs I have from making up new arrows.

I don't have a real need for .22 speed loaders myself though. I don't have anything to shoot at that requires that much lead in a short amount of time. Slow reloads allow for some quality time making conversation with good friends and family while enjoying plinking away on a lazy summer day. All part of the experience IMO.

Yerp, I did that awhile back for my 1960 Marlin 99-G & the wifey's old model 60, as the older mag tubes hold 18 rounds

I've found that carbon arrows are good for this as well, as long as you use the proper size...heck, even clear plastic tubing works (especially with .30-30 & .45/70

The REASON folks do this is because a person who has practiced reloading in this manner can often reload faster than a fella with 10/22 clip mags...and this is MOST amusing at the range
