Speed loader>speed strip>moon clips
Spring loaded or gravity feed. What do you like best and why???

Full Moon clips are the fastest re-load by a wide margin. They are best with the 45 ACP cartridge loaded with FMJ Ball. The larger chamber mouths and stubby cartridges make for the fastest reload possible with a revolver in my experience and observation.

I find the moon clips interesting, but my only revolver is not suited to them, .357. I like the speed loaders that twist release.

I like the full moon clips for the .45 revolvers I've shot (but no longer have).

I tried spring loaded speed loaders in my .38 and did not like them. My setup for the competition was not correct for spring loaded and I had rounds falling all over the place. I prefer the "twist to load" kind.

I like the full moon clips also. They are the fastest

The moon clips only work if the revolver's cylinder is designed to accept them. Speed loaders and speed strips don't have that limitation...
