Loading the new ArmalIte AR10 Gen 2 mags

Armalite customer service tells me that they don't know of any faster way to load their new AR10 Gen 2 .308 magazines other than one by one. Does anyone out there know a better/faster way? It's hard on the thumbs their way. I tried a couple of speed loaders and stripper clips, and nothing works. Thanks

Also take the mag apart and spray the follower , spring and inside of the mag body with a "Dri-Film" lubricant. Let it dry, then Cycle the reassembled empty mag a couple of times with a 1 gal. paint stick or wooden ruler. The new mag. might just be "sticky".

They get loosen up a bit with use.Keep MAGS loaded away from rifle to speed things up.I use my AR-10 a lot but so far speed loaders have not worked good luck in your search,Been trying for 30 Rd ALUM.HK91 MAGS think both the speed loaders and the mags are rare goodluck.HOGSHOOTER
