I'm back with another question, all. Annoying newbies! I'm still trying to decide on my first .22 rifle, and am now at the point where I have a couple clear options. All are older rifles with solid reputations, but one defining factor amongst them is how rounds are loaded. Some of the rifles I'm looking at are tube-fed, and others have removable magazines. I'm trying to decide which I prefer. For example, one of the rifles I'm looking at is the Mossberg 151MB. Tube magazine. The tube is listed as being able to hold 10-14 rounds. That seems like plenty, but how long is the reload time between magazines? Another model I'm looking at is the Springfield 84C. This one has a removable magazine, which would allow me to purchase multiples, load them all at once, and fire all of the rounds in a short amoutn of time. 10-round mags are the max capacity, though, and they are about $20 per. I'm unsure which route to go in. On the one hand, I like the tube magazine, because it's integrated into the rifle, and cannot be lost. I do not like the length of reload time. On the other hand, I'm familiar with removable magazine rifles, having carried 180 round loads of 5.56mm for four years of my life with my M16A2. I think the deciding factor will be general firing habits, so that's where I need your advice. When you're out in the back yard, or at the range, how much ammo do you have loaded into removable mags at any one time? Do you load 2-4 mags at once and fire out? How long is your typical reload time when using a tube-fed rifle? Obviously, I know reload time isn't a huge issue for .22LR ammo, since it's not a "combat" rifle. I won't be repelling the Red Horde with this thing. I'll be plinking cans and bottles in my back yard. But, ease of use and time spent is still important. Thanks in advance for any advice or insight you can throw at me.
