I just finished loading the AR15 stripper clips I got in the mail today. It didn't take long and look good stacked up in my range bag (hope I don't bust a seam). I already have my mags loaded ready for some good weather to hit the range. Ah, the joy of ammo. Bad part is, I still have a bit of ammo left, time for more mags/stripper clips, ha-ha. [bounce][bounce][bounce][bounce][bounce][boun­ce] Edited to say it wouldn't be bad having "100 STRIPPERS" either

Only 100?

I'm still fairly new, I'll work on it, ha-ha.

Putting them in your range bag? Jeez man, at least get an ammo can. Why would you want to rip your bag? Yep, got to love them stripper clips. I ACTUALLY enjoy loading them. Speaking of which, I should go see if I can find a few empties laying around.

I determined that for my tastes, stripper clips are hardly worth the effort unless the ammo comes already mounted on them. Loading stripper clips takes just as long as it does to load each round into your magazines by hand, and strippers don't always work right, with some of them screwing up if you don't press them in at the base of the round every time. I'd rather handle my ammo just once, going into the mags. I bring a pile of loaded mags to the range and never have to worry about it and I never have to load a mag on the spot, because I carry enough for the day. CJ

Come on everyone, get real. Joy is having 100 loaded strippers! [beer]

Yeah; Strippers come in handy. What I do is spray them with silicone Lube (I use Pyroil) it dries completely with a film of dry lube. Makes loading slicker and acts as a good water repellent.

If joy is having 100 loaded stripper clips, then hell is having 100 loaded stripper clips on a trip to the desert and having your rifle break after 1.5 mags. [:(] I use the loader that came with my Beta mag to load in the field. It's really quick and your thumb never gets sore. I've only used it with thermolds and the Beta so I don't know if works with USGIs. Shorty

RayVet, good idea on the lube for the stripper clips, I'll have to try that out. I used to load mags one bullet at a time in the Army, but after having hand surgery, I need all the help I can get. For me, it's easier to load a bunch of strippers and then go to the mags when needed. Seamusmcoi, you're right, I need to get my ass to the surplus store and get some ammo cans. As for having 100 strippers, that's why I like to go to the Olympic Garden in Las Vegas !!!! By the way, the strippers there come pre-lubed.

I have been there!!! That place rocks. The best part? My wife goes upstairs and can drop all the dollars she wants into loaded thongs. The guys u there are mostly gay anyway. And I reap the rewards back at the hotel room. Gotta love it. That place is PACKED with hot strippers. Thanks for reminding me. A trip to Vegas sounds real good right now.

thebeekeeper1, I remember back some time reading that Beta C-Mag loaders were the best. I'll have to get one and try them out. Of course, I'd like to get a Beta C-Mag, but they are a lot of $$$.

What are stripper clips? [whacko]
Link Posted: 3/6/2002 7:52:09 PM EDT
These are one way to speed load your AR15 mags. They hold 10 rounds each and you use an adapter that fits on the mag, the stripper clip fits in the adapter, then you push the rounds in the mag to load it. Works pretty good for most.
