Butler Creek ASAP Magazine Loaders Highlight of NRA Show


OVERLAND PARK, Kansas – April 27, 2017 – Butler Creek, maker of smart, field-proven hunting and shooting accessories, announces the new ASAP Magazine loaders are now available. Come see them and learn why “Shooting USA” host John Scoutten has chosen these loaders as his go-to option at the Vista Outdoor booth (#2542) during the 2017 NRA Meetings and Exhibits Show in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27 to 30.

Available in Universal Single Stack, Universal Double Stack, AK-47/GALIL and AR15 magazine configurations these loaders are extremely easy to use and provide speed and relief from “shooter’s thumb.” The Universal Single Stack and Universal Double Stack ASAP loaders work with a large majority of common magazines between 9mm and .45 ACP (including .380 ACP for the Double Stack Loader).

“They are extremely easy to use,” said Butler Creek Product Manager Will Hemeyer. “Simply push the mag loader down, insert the round below the feed lips, and raise the loader up. The cartridge is seated and magazine loaded… just like that.”

The ASAP Universal AR15/M16 Mag Loader offers three ways to load MSR magazines—and none involve the user’s thumbs. Loose ammo can be loaded one round at a time with a simple click into place.

“Or, users can engage the loading arm to expedite the process,” Hemeyer said. “The loading arm can handle up to 10 rounds of loose ammo, or rounds held in a stripper clip. The rounds are locked into the mag with a quick push.”

Consumers can try the new loaders at the 2017 NRA Meetings and Exhibits Show in Atlanta, Georgia, April 27 to 30. Butler Creek brand ambassador John Scoutten will be on hand to answer questions. Scoutten is the producer and Emmy award nominee co-host of the Outdoor Channel’s “Shooting USA.” He also competes in multiple shooting events, including NRA Action Pistol, Steel Challenge and the Precision Rifle Series, among others. On Friday, April 28, Scoutten will host a product demonstration at 1 p.m. followed by a question-and-answer session at 1:30 at the Vista Outdoor booth (#2542).

Butler Creek, a Vista Outdoor brand, serves hunters and shooters, offering high-quality accessories such as gun slings, scope covers and more. Learn more at the updated www.butlercreek.com.

    Has anyone compared these to other loaders on the market? When loading 10 at a time, do all the rounds seat against the rear of the magazine properly? I’ve never “needed” a loader but I was given a lula and it does speed the process slightly but 10 rounds at a time, it does not do.

      The StripLulas work almost flawlessly. The only hitch to a clip speed-loader is sometimes, depending on the round/magazine they may not want to feed as the tip of the bullet will hit the front of the magazine. The only mags that I’ve really had an issue with is the M885A1 on brand new military issue tan-tops. I did have some failures to feed the mag with the M885 on brand new tan-tops but not as many. If I got an old tan-top the lula would load the magazine as faster than you can empty it on semi, I’ve done it, loaded 30 rounds in less than 3 seconds. Honestly having loaded literally, thousands of mags, the StripLula is the best name in the game. They’re compact and work VERY well. I’ve never had a damaged round from one, unlike the crappy stamped steel speedloaders you get from the bandoliers. If you’ve ever worked an ammo point in the military and are tasked to load mags, you MUST have at least 2 of these. One to use yourself and one to pass around so they don’t get pissed that you have the only one!
