PostSubject: Marlin Model 60   Thu Jun 07, 2012 10:38 pm

I love my sks, but sometimes in a survival situation the ability to hunt small game without announcing that you have a large gun to people far away is a good idea. The crack of a 22 doesn't carry that far. It also make a good backup SHTF rifle. A 22 doesn't have a lot of stopping power, but if you injure a combatant, it takes at least 1 other combatant to tend to them, basically doubling the effectiveness of the shot. I have a Marlin Model 60. In my opinion it is one of the best rifles to target practice with. It is cheap and accurate. The tube hold 14 rounds of 22LR ammo, but I usually only load 8 or 9. Whenever I go to a fast food place that has the right size drinking straws I grab a few. I can tape up one end and load 8 or 9 rounds into it, bullet side down, and tape the other end creating a "tab" with the tape, and I now have a speedloader for a tube fed 22. Grab a staw, pull out the plunger rod, pull off tab, dump ammo into tube, replace plunger. I can load my 22 as fast as many folks can change mags. And the straws are free. As I said before. I love ms sks, but don't overlook the little ol' 22. If ya gotta get somewhere fast, it's lightweight, the ammo is lightweight, dependable, accurate, and quiet.

PostSubject: 22 speed loadtubes   Sun Jun 17, 2012 10:39 pm

I have taken a different approach to making speed loading tubes for a .22 . I start with 2 straws, the first one I tape up the one end, then load 7 bullets into it, then trim it to size and place a tape tab on it. I do the same for the second straw, the I place them side by side with tab end opposite each other and stagger them about 3/4 inch (so loading end can go into .22 mag tube) and tape the straws together. My .22 holds 14 rounds and the straw packs hold 14 rounds. All I have to do is pull a tab, dump ammo into rifle, flip straw pack and repeat. I keep the straw packs in an E-Tool pouch( it will hold an insane amount of straw packs). I have seen speed loaders for sale that hold 14/15 rounds in a single tube, but they look bulky and hard to carry around. Mine are easy to carry, and you can spend alot more time plinking targets and less time loading.
