I bought a brand new 10/22 last spring and I have 2 promag 25rnd mags for it, neither one of them will feed hallow points, seem to do round nose ok, I have been talking to their tech support, who is very helpful (seriously he is) and I just wanted to know if anyone else had experience with these mags. It would be really nice if they would feed hallow points. Also, Butler Creek (Hot lips) makes that crank speed loader thing, says it only works for their mags, but a 10/22 mag should be a 10/22 mag as far loading is concerned right? Well, let me know what you know, thanks!

I have the crank loader, and it does not work with some mags; it has to do with the way the mag is cut out, in a place that does NOT affect it in use, but makes the loader unable to accept it. Works GREAT with the mags it fits; like the Butler Creek.
As far as hollow points and round nose...yep. I can't get my latest federal bulk pack rounds to feed in my Eagle mags, the bullets are a little too long. Never had that problem before with other brand bulk packs... :cantlook:

Basically, stay with mags that have metal lips, and the red lips, and they seem to work more consistently. But some bullets in other mags work fine too.

IMO, it's wasting your money to buy anything other than the Butler Creek steel lipped mags.
My recommendation as well. I have the loader and it works flawlessy with my steel lip mags. Never have problems with ftf with these mags. Plus you can clip them together for a double stack mag!

I agree also, Butler Creek have always worked the best for me and the Ramlines were ok but not bad just not as consistent in quality. Some worked great for years and others were marginal.

The Butler Creek 10/22 branded hi capacity mags have never let me down.

I have 2 HOT LIPS mags. 1 is flawless (unless I get a ammo malfunction) and the other works good but has a few feeding issues... I only use them while plinking. I use the factory 10 rds when I am hunting. I do use the BC speed loader for the mags and it works great sometimes I will get one that goes in wrong (top round rim will be behind the round under) and that is most of the time the problem with my BC Hot LIPS. I have not used the steel lips but I heard they work fine...

I only buy the Butler Creek Steel Lips because I think it's a waste of money to buy magazines that don't work. The Steel Lips are the cheapest magazines that work almost all the time (and they're not cheap)
But, if you're the guy with the deep pockets and you want the best 10/22 mags available. Buy these:
