About twice as long as it needs to be but take note at about 14.05 when he references unloading it by the tube and a round hanging up behind the load gate. I wasn't too impressed by seeing him having to tap the barrel on the bench to free it. Maybe pushing a finger into the gate would do it as well but that wasn't mentioned.
Also back up to 13.23 when he is loading and seating the tube - notice him 'hammering' the tube by hand a couple times to clear the rims of the rounds?
I am basically impressed with it however both of these issues, as well as the the argument of it eliminating having to cycle the action to unload a typical side loader are not enough to overcome what I see as problems with the 'dual load' system.
