This is a 1.75" x 8" block that has 5 positions for 10 rounds of 22 Long Rifle cartridges.
The pattern is for the S&W 617 10 Shot Revolver.
Placing the rounds into the loading block and then transferring them to the speed loader makes the loading process a snap.

Taking a couple of these to the range already filled with ammo makes it easy to burn through a bunch of .22! Great setup, highly recommended.
It's nice to have your shells ready to go. The blocks seem to be an efficient method for fast reloads at the range. The shells fit a little looser in the block than I imagined, necessitating you to use some kind of case to hold the shells in the block when transporting your preloaded blocks. All in all very satisfied.
Makes Loading quicker, easier, more time to enjoy actually shooting.
These work great for the s&w 617. And they're priced right!
The loading block isn't absolutely necessary for the speed loaders, but it sure makes life easier. For casual plinking and target shooting, you can reload a single speed loader in under a second with this block, which means that you could do five full reloads without having to pause for more than a second or two. The block itself is pretty simple, but the holes are lined up perfectly and tucks into my range bag with ease.
I found this block is a good way to load speedloaders, if you have the time to fill it first. Good for competition, though having enough speedloaders to just use it as a holder would probably work better. For simple range "plinking", it makes it easier to fill the speedloader, but really isn't that much of a timesaver.
Okay,I really do like it, but... I bought the block to help load my S&W 617 Speed Loaders. Or so I thought. Well, by the time I load the block and snap the Speed Loaders over the rounds, I can almost load 2 of the Speed Loaders by hand. So what do I use the block for? I use it at Steel Challenge events. It makes an awesome holder or transporter for 5 loaded Speed Loaders on my gun cart or at the shooter's table.
Excellent product. I can load a 100 round container of bullets onto the block in a short period of time. Then just snatch each ten round batch with my speed loader in the flash of an eye. Can't wait to use it at the range.
Having five loads ready, was perfect for shooting Steel Challenge. If the rounds start to stick, rinse it with warm water and dish soap. The wax from the rounds can build up inside the holes. This is also a very good value compared to other loading blocks.
