Yo Dawg, I Heard You Like Mags...

Something that I missed when I lived in MA was the joy of loading full capacity magazines. Now that I live in America, where full capacity - and even high capacity! - magazines are fine, there's the little matter of loading them. I've got my Maglula for loading my double-stack pistol magazines, but what about those new 30- and 40-round AR-15 magazines?

Fear not. We have the answer.

Caldwell AR-15 Mag Charger


It looks dirt-simple: Load the rounds in the included tray. Take the tray and load all 50 rounds into the charger. Insert AR mag - 10-, 20-, 30-, 40- round mags are fine, as are drums - until it clicks. Depress plunger to load 5 rounds into magazine. Repeat as needed.

It will be brought to the Seventh Annual Northeast Bloggershoot, where I certainly hope that not only it get a good workout, but it will prove itself to work fine. MSRP is listed as $90, but it's available through Cabela's, Midway, Brownells and others with prices as low as mid-$60s. If you do a lot of shooting, this is a trivial investment to save your poor thumbs...

Thought this might be of interest, and we'll be trying it out at the shoot!

That is all.
