I can't find it either in my area. Settled for American Eagle black box. Bought 200 rounds last week at a local store. They run fine in my Charlie.

They are out as well, but this is what I bought last month on sale locally for 6.49. This last week they were 6.99 but I bought 200 rounds just because they had them in stock. Least they are FMJBT. May be the same product as the hard to find Lake City. Even checked Wally World for the old 100 round value pack. None to be found anymore ????

My son has several stripper clips. He just picked them up from his travels in the Marine Corps. Not preloaded as they sell them, but they do assist loading a long magazine. They work well in combat, but for my use at a local shooting range it's about as efficient to just load the rounds in the mag one at a time. Stripper clips do give you something to do at home if you just want to load a couple 4 or 5 of them to give a rapid reloading capability.
There again I like my metal mags where the stripper clips fit in at the top. You just give them a good shove and they disappear into the mag. Load another one and it gets stiffer, but they still go in. 10 seconds I would say to reload a 30 round mag with stripper clips/ with practice. I'm sure some folks have that down to less than that, but that's getting hard core :)
