.308 Magazine Speed Loader

.308 Magazine Speed Loader

When it comes to magazines, loading can be a huge hassle. Sore thumbs, bent feed lips and wasted time seem to be the norm. That is, unless you use a speed loader. If your favorite rifle happens to be an FN/FAL, M14/M16, AR-10 or an HK91/G3/CETME, then you need to grab our .308 magazine speed loader.

Description / .308 Magazine Speed Loader

Based in California, NcStar was established in 1997 as an affordable alternative to the high-end optics corporations that were then populating the market. For 15 years, NcStar has built the experience and expertise necessary to provide a number of markets – including military, law enforcement and civilian shooters – with not only high quality and innovative optics that are designed to offer lifetime satisfaction, but also a number of other firearm-related products and accessories. They do so with the world-class customer service that you would expect from a small local business. Today, NcStar looks to continue offering competitive products at more-than-competitive prices as they solidify their share in the arms accessories industry.

As noted, NcStar specializes in optics but also offers a number of other products and accessories related to the shooting sports. One of those products is the .308 magazine speed loader. For those unaware, a speed loader is any device that carries the sole purpose of aiding in the speedy loading of a firearm magazine. Typically, high-capacity magazines carry a high spring pressure, making it sometimes difficult to not only load the magazine, but to do so in a timely fashion. The NcStar .308 magazine speed loader is one such device that can be easily employed to cut down on loading times and pump up your shooting time.

The NcStar .308 magazine speed loader consists of two polymer components that make loading a variety of magazines including those for the FN/FAL, M14/M1A, AR-10 and HK91/G3/CETME to full capacity in 30 seconds or less a reality. To use the device, simply place the open end of the speed loaded over the feeding end of your magazine. Then, insert one stripper clip into the opposite end of the speed loaded. Finally, follow the stripper clip with the plunger in order to push the ammunition into the magazine. Remove the plunger from the opening. Doing so will also remove the stripper clip via the integral magnets located in the plunger. Continue this process until your desired capacity is reached.

Well made product. But unless you have hand strength issues it is not necessary.
Great product & great price
Review by David
I think this is a very good loader, it made it fun to load 20 rnd M1A mags, very fast & very easy to operate, and the price is great!
Thanks KS
definitely does its job
Review by the other Michael
With some lite modifications this can easily load a wide range of .308/7.62NATO magazines. Boy can it get you ready to throw some power down range! Unfortunately it is so good, it has thrown a lot of my money down range as well and I reload .308win!
little odd looking, but works great
Review by rodney
It looks a little odd but it works great. You can load 20 rounds off (2) of the NcStar 10 round stripper clips pretty fast for a full 308 magazine. Made well to boot. Sturdy.
Saiga 308 mags
Review by Nrm
After some easy modification I am now thrilled that I can speedload ALL my Saiga 308 mags. I have FBMG (now Uintas), one CSSPEC steel mag and several SGM Tactical (was Surefire).
This is a true speed loader - it doesn't just save your thumb.

Use your due diligence but I took off 3/8" of the bottom and cut a 1/2" square from the front to allow for the mag latch. I used a dremel but a hacksaw blade would work.

I've also just ordered from KeepShooting a box of stripper clips.
various Saiga 308 mags
Review by Nrm
For my Saiga 308 I have SGM Tactical / surefire mags, a CSSPECS metal mag and FBMG / Uintas mags. After I modified this speedloader it works on all. It's a real speedloader. Not just a thumb-saver but a true speedloader, speed loading 10 rounds at a time! Unless you have money to burn, this is a must have. Price is great. Mailing is fast and affordable.

This is my first mod of this speed loader so do your due diligence when considering the following specifications. 3/8" off the bottom and then 1/2" square cut out from the middle in front to allow for the front magazine 'latch'. I used a hack saw and dremel and had it figured out and done within an hour.
Review by Leonard
Used this for the first and started off loading Military Surplus magazines(6) followed by brand new Thermold magazines(4)..
This product was flawless. It took seconds to due what before seemed like hours. My fingers have been spared for other work.
Great loader
Review by Joe
Great loader for metric FAL magazines! Loved the ease of use and speed of loading. It made loading at the range fast and easy. This product does not work with inch magazines.
Be sure to get stripper clips to!
Review by RemMax
Stripper clips are the best way to store ammo without fatiguing your mag spring
Stripper clips along with this loader will load your 308 mags in seconds and you can load your stripper clips at home and at leisure to put away for that day when you need all your mags loaded in a hurry.
Be sure to pick up stripper clips as well loader only comes with 2
Works like a charm
Review by Michael
This is a must for high volume shooters or anyone else who wants to save their thumbs along with a whole lot of time. Spend seconds loading mags instead of quite a few minutes. This loader works great and the price is not bad either. Make sure to pick up some KS .308 stripper clips at the same time.
Works really easy, very slick
Review by Gerald
This speed loader is really easy to use. I was surprised how smooth it was. I can't believe I loaded those magazines by hand before. Comes with 2 stripper clips. I bought a couple of extra boxes just so I could preload them and ready to go.
Review by Marine
If you don't have it you better snatch one for your 308 and grab a 556 loader while you are at it before Feinstein bans these too!
Review by jeremiah
Should have gotten this thing sooner,just like the video it is a lot faster to reload and saves your fingers. well constructed and fits very well on my g3 mags.also cool that it came with two stripper clips.

308 loader
Review by dave
works great, and even came with 2 stripper clips. stripper clips are a must have, and i got some of the keep shooting brand sold here as well. you can carry this and not have to carry as many mags since reloading is very fast and easy. ammo is also easy to deal with when on stripper clips.
Own a .308, You need one (or two)
Review by NightStalker
I got two of these a while ago, just in case I bought some 308 in Strippers. Well, my last ammo purchase was 308 on strippers.
No damage to the strippers, Mags loaded easy, No M14 Thumb.
I'm planning on getting a few more of these, along with the Stripper Clips just so I can back-ups.
YOU NEED ONE (or Two).
