    If the size of a speedloader is an issue then this is absolutely a good option, as the strips will be easier to carry.

    Nice video.

    Nice informative post Gate! :cool:

    And as stated above, the speed-strips would be easier to carry and one could carry more, than with round speed-loaders, and reload is almost as quick.

    I like the strips for the reasons other's stated above. They are compact and lay flat in a pocket. I always wondered the best way to use them (twisting up or to the side,etc).
    My new strips are very tight and don't release the rounds without some serious force , I need to do some practice to loosen them up a bit and get more comfortable with the procedure:D

    Good info, made a lot of sense, I've always tried to bend them and load 3 at a time. It never worked out well.

    Thanks

    I like the speed strips for my BUG. 2 speed strips in the trauma plate pouch of the body armor lay flat and brings my total ammo on board to 64 rounds. With that, I should be able to get to the trunk and REALLY get into a serious fight.

    Speed Strip

    Thanks for sharing.

    I'm going to have to try out the 5 out of 6 method this evening.

    It's always nice to learn a new trick.

    Speed strips are the way to go for a BUG

    I have used Bianchi speed strips, downloaded by one, as the best available option for reloading a small frame .38spl for years.

  11. Hmmm?

    I've carried Speed Strips since the 1970s and never realized the problem of loading them fully. They always worked for me even so.

    Just a couple months ago, I found some speed strips (or knock offs) for .44 Special/Magnum revolvers and picked up a couple. Since then I've moved and have to find the right box to get them out. Did I mention I hate moving?
