    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.

    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?
