I originally made this flat bed linker to handle .308 ammo. Later I needed to link 8mm which uses 30-06 links, so I made a second channel plate and end plate. It's a quick change by removing 6 screws.
Note: If you are new to linking and belting ammo, you cannot use a flatbed linkker to load cloth belts.

30-06 LINKER
Use the drawings below to adapt the above plans for a 30-06 linker.
NOTE: The dimensions for the 30-06 parts have been updated. My apologies for any additional grief this might have caused. Thanks to Storage_man for correcting this and for not chewing me out for the work it cost him. 1/11/2005

30-06 parts.

With the 30-06 parts I decided to leave an empty slot at the right end only. I cut the channel plate with 24 slots and the end plate with 22 holes. Lay it out to your own preferences keeping in mind the .525" center to center dimension.
