J frame revolvers are small frame.
K frame are medium frame.
Might be some other differences but I'm not sure.

I'll see if I can't find pics.

Okay Here's your final exam. What frame is my Ruger GP100? I'm guessing K frame?

I think its closer to a L frame.

Someone who knows a little more will hopefully come along and clarify.

Edit: I'm also thinking that the lettered frame sizes are specific to S&W. So your gp100 might differ a little from L frame specs.

Smith & Wesson uses the alpha designation of the frame sizes. Your GP100 uses the same speed loader as a Smith & Wesson 686, both are medium frame revolvers. The 686 is designated an L frame by S&W.
