Lightbulb .43 calibre hipflask

I wanted a way to reload all my clips at least once on the field, without messing around with a pile of tubes. I KNEW there was a reason I didn't throw away that leaky flask...


A little JB-Weld to move the spout to the edge of the flask (and a dime to cover the old hole). Fits a .43 cal paintball with room to spare.


One-handing a two-handed operation for the sake of a photo. Yes that is a tripod. No, I was too lazy to get out my real camera.


The leather holster does a decent job muffling the noise, and doesn't look half bad.

Flasks, not just for alcoholics!

Nah, I use a Casegard .22LR pouch for mine:


Holds 50-60 .43's and .50's, or about 30 .68's. Great for handloading into a phantom feed or a Crosman but nowhere near as quick for filling Eraser mags.

By all means, do. It's not perfect - it requires a little jiggling to pour the balls, but I think that's still faster than fumbling with a bunch of tiny tubes and caps. Moving the spout to the side helped, and I put a bit of JB weld inside to fill the lip between the spout and side of the flask. That seemed to help some, too. Anything else you can figure out to improve this system is welcome information!
