    No kidding. I feel like a cheap-ass buying Monarch but I can't afford to load up a bunch of mags with Hornady or something. :hs:

    What's the hotness for 10/22 mags now?

    Bitches are a PITA to load

    I guess. I haven't done any sort of comparison with the pricier stuff. I figure at medium-ranges vs zombies should be okay. :o

    Have we ever established the ware and tear on a barrel when using .22 (couple thousand rounds a month) in a 5.56 marked barrel?

    I really would like a conversion kit...

    Dude, I'll reload my glock or Pmags all day -- I dread loading my ruger mags. Little fuckers are just a pain in the ass to load. Thumbs hurt more after loading 30 in a Butler mag than loading anything else

    The 10rnd rotary ones are easy on the thumbs. Tactical Innovations makes some nice 25rnd 10/22 mags too. But yeah, my thumbs hurt loading hicap 10/22 mags more than any other rifle mags :rofl:

    I saw one guy at the range that had this little mag loader thing for his 10/22. He just shook it while twisting a knob and it loaded them right up. Not sure what it's called.

    :werd: best $25 spent. You can load a 25 rnd butler creek mag in about 45sec-1 min. and all you have to do is make sure the hopper is full and rotate the knob.

    low low low, low, very low :big grin:. You never find a shot out .22lr barrel, you just find .22 barrels that have been ruined by people and their cleaning practices.

    Ok, so if I were to invest in a .22LR conversion kit for my AR -- I could in theory fire off a couple thousand rounds a month in practice...

    Yeah I know, but the thought of having already paid out a grand in parts to build one, well I didn't want to start pushing shit through it and knowing I'd have to replace the barrel in a year
