(Since I retired I have WAY too much free time and not near enough money. LOL)
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
