Thread: Federal plastic ammo clips

    Federal plastic ammo clips

    I have found a use for the plastic Federal 10 round holders as supplied it their boxed ammunition. I threw out most of the ones I had some time ago, which seemed like a good idea at the time.... I am after 2 sizes: small to fit 222, 223 and the like, and large that fits 308, 243, 6.5x55 7x57 or similar. Do any of you good folks have any you'd like to dispose of?

    Typical! everyone else has thrown them out too! But if you do come across any I'd be grateful.
    As to the use, on re-reading my original post, it does look a bit cryptic - no secret though, it's for holding.... ammunition again. But not in the original cardboard boxes as they don't last very long. I've found one that takes up less space than the current MTM ones in my rather limited secure storage space and I think these would fit it just right.

    The Norma holders are far better imho, and you can break them in half , holding only 5 rounds is you wish.

    I've never used factory Norma, so I've never seen them. Are they like the Lapua ones, moulded in 1 piece but folded over?
