Butler Creek® Hot Lips® 10/22® Loader
Save your frustration and money
I purchased the Hot Lips loader after my Ram Line loader wore out and I found it was discontinued.
This device was difficult to use from the first. It never fed bullets continuously with the turn of the wheel, and never feed them smoothly into the Steel Lips magazine. I ran probably 300 rounds through it over a year. I wasn't surprised when the wheel twisted right off in my hand. After examining it, I am surprised it lasted as long as it did.
It's not sturdy, and with the difficulty I experienced turning the wheel back and forth to get the bullet to line up just right to feed, the wheel isn't rugged enough to withstand the required torque.
I'm back to hand-loading my magazines. I'm getting accustomed again to loading 25-round mags with a sturdy thumb and index finger.

Great product, very impressed
I got this for my Ruger 10/22. I have 2 BX-25 mags and 2 BX-25x2 mags. I really haven't had any problems loading the mags, but I have to say this makes the process much faster and more enjoyable. I'll be spending more time shooting and less time loading. Do yourself a favor if you have a 10/22 and get one.

My Hot Lips Loader
Reloading ten rounds into a circular chamber magazine like the one on my Ruger 10-22 can be a painful experience to anyone my age with arthritic fingers. This made it an easy and enjoyable task. If you can wind up a an alarm clock you can reload your Ruger magazines just as easily. Now all I have to do is find more 22 ammo. Hopefully they'll make one for my 30-06 American Rifle with the same type of magazine.
