This item is intended to be used with the nc star .308 mag loader , thats why the retention is limited on the ends its designed to allow free movement of the shells , otherwise they work as intended , they were not designed to function in an m1a stripper clip guide .
HARD to find item
Everyone must have gotten a AR10 for Christmas - these were really scarce, as were the MAG Loaders. These held the loaded rounds securely - tho no brass tabs like the GI 5.556 version. I even dropped 2 loaded strips in a mag pouch then retrieved them with out loosing a round. Would like to find re-supply boxes like the G.I. bandoleer set up for the AR16. Work best with the 308/AR10 NCStar mag loader.
Needed 7.62mm stripper clips for both an Enfield 2A and a Spanish Mauser FR-8, both chambered in 7.62. Clips arrived quickly and have worked perfectly in both weapons without a single issue. Great product exactly as advertised and great customer service
for the prepper and high volume shooter!
These are very cost effective, but they have cost me a lot in ammunition! They work alright. They work me out of money and reloading supplies. They are more cost effective when used for storing ammo. You don't have to worry about spring damage, and you can load up in no time!
can be used for 30-06 ammo to.
I bought these to hold my 308 ammo. I have a semi-auto BAR which holds 20 rounds of 30-06 / M2 .30 cal ammo in it's magazine. I have a magazine loader for the 20 round Mags. These stripper clips fit perfect in the magazine loader, and the 30-06 ammo fits perfect in the stripper clips. I was able to load a 20 round BAR magazine very quickly!. Bet the American G.I. BAR Gunners from WW1 - WW II & Korea wished they had been issued these over those crappy 1903 Springfield stripper clips. Only problem is finding ammo pouches that will take 10 stacked rounds of 308 or 30/06 ammo. Most are to shallow or too deep.
