A bit of a hiccup on the clip issue.
It is kind of a clip used to load .22 mags. Almost all the old school guys I know say clip when they mean mag. I think it comes from the Garand days.
@the OP. I use the mcfaden for my 22/45 mags and the uplula (umpa lumpa) for all my other mags. Relatively quick and easy on the fingers.
Concentrated power is not rendered harmless by the good intentions of those who create it.
