By Country Queries of The Field
Tuesday, 11 September 2012
My father saw a speed-loader in a magazine around Christmas time. I believe the speed-loader looked like a rope that had been joined together at its ends, then you slipped it over your head and it hung by your side. Can you help?

There are two suitable speed-loaders.
The Monkey Loader speed-loader is a Teflon-coated tube that is placed over the head and joins at hip level. The speed-loader is available in two colours, loden and leaf green, and five sizes, priced £75 (call 01256 780336).
The Loadmaster speed-loader classic (below) is an oblong-shaped leather-covered plastic box divided into two sections; it holds 28x12-bore, 26x16-bore or 32x20-bore cartridges. The box is attached to an olive green adjustable strap that slips over the head and the box hangs neatly to one side. The Loadmaster speed-loader is available at a cost of £225. Call Fine Shooting Acessories on 01890 882139.
