From the Department of I Should Have Thought Of That, comes the Box-to-Mag loader from Three Point Innovations. Anyone who’s ever spent time loading 5.56×45 into STANAG magazines from boxes should appreciate this product. Drop a 20 round box of ammo in the loader, or dump in individual rounds, and push down on the plunger. Bingo, all your rounds are loaded. It doesn’t work with stripper clips, but, if your’e using stripper clips you probably don’t need it?
It appears that the loader is currently only available for 5.56×45. Well, that’s a stretch, the product isn’t set to ship until October. Versions for loading 6.8SPC and for AK rifles are “highly likely” in the next product revision.
