Did anyone make a real "Hi Cap" for the Ruger?

I think BC or someone made a 12 round plastic magazine,
but did anyone every produce a real 20 or 25 rounder?

Don't suppose anyone got around to making a snail-mag either?

Boy how I hate to load .22 magazines! :)

I did see a few of the "quick loaders" around - haven't really
looked at one close yet. Do they eat your magazines like
they did to the 10/22 magazines?

I can't speak for the loader above, but the one's I've seen
for 10/22 seem to work the same way.

You line up 10-30 cartridges then shove them straight down
into the magazine.

The problem I have, is that the magazines (typically?) are loaded
with the cartridge butt pushing down and then slide to the rear,
seating the cartridge in the magazine.

If you were to push it straight down from the top, the cartridge,
and especially the rim, put a lot of wear and tear on the feed lips.
This is especially a problem for plastic-lipped 10/22 magazines
(you know - the expensive $60 30-rd jobbies!).

Am I making too much of it? Do the metal-feedlips take this
action better?
