How are you going to accomodate the variety of mags out there? I love the idea and I hope it makes you millions.

I would like to see it as a machine like that would be good and bad at the range. Good for quickly reloading your mags, bad for your wallet because it will make you shoot more.

The biggest problem I see is the size I would think this would have to be. Not very easy to take to a range, I would imagine. I take my backpack with everything in it, so I don't imagine this would fit.

I'm sure the size could be kept reasonable. When I go to the range it means multiple rifles, handguns and ammo cans. When we go out to the desert we add a grill and charcoal plus tables to the equation. Maybe I'm weird but we usually make a day out of it and a bbq. I think this reloader would be great in the back of the truck. Hurry up and get this thing going, LOL

It would be cool you designed one generic mechanism, and then you offered the adaptors for different calibers, magazines, brands, etc. Then a shooter could purchase the basic kit, and then add the adaptors as needed to accomodiate future purchases.

I remember seeing loaders for 10/22 mags, not sure if they are still available.
