Can you get around the magazine capacity by using a belt feed since it technically wouldn't use a magazine?

Need to look up the definition of a "high capacity ammunition feeding device".

If you have a belt, you need pre ban links, or less than 10 linked together.

It basically says any feeding device that can feed more then 10 rounds at a time to a semi automatic weapon, this includes tubes and everything under the sun, so no unfortunately.

I keep hoping that by magic the ban laws will be lifted for just a day or so and then reinstated so that "Pre-Ban" is now anything made after 2012 XD, hey I can dream.

Perhaps you should also read the definition of "high capacity ammunition feeding device" because your description is technically incorrect.

Also, tube-fed rimfires are excluded, I believe. If you're trying to skirt a 10-round limit, there's somewhere to start. And there's some big-bore rimfires, you're not limited just to .22s and smaller.

Or, of course, just do the easy and obvious thing and get some pre-bans.

A belt is also banned like magazines but unlike mags hard to probe it is a preban setup. A DA and his lawyers always have the upper hand. What round do you need the high capacity for?

Yep, Darth is correct, .22 rimfire tubular devive only.

23. "Large capacity ammunition feeding device" means a magazine, belt, drum, feed strip, or similar device, manufactured after September thirteenth, nineteen hundred ninety-four, that has a capacity of, or that can be readily restored or converted to accept, more than ten rounds of ammunition; provided, however, that such term does not include an attached tubular device designed to accept, and capable of operating only with, .22 caliber rimfire ammunition.

Oops! Guess that sort of leaves the 5mm and .17s in a bad situation.
