    Ones anyone know of a good fitting speed loader for the Ruger LCR? I've heard mixed reviews on the HKS speed loader (I'll fitting). Not even sure what speed loader Ruger sells on their website.

    I use the HKS. I remember hearing it didn't fit Witt the crimson trace grips but it works with mine. The body of the loader doesn't contact the cylinder but it is enough for the ammo to insert far enough so that it isn't an issue for me.

    I use the HKS with mine, but it's not a great fit (I have the factor Hogue Tamer grips, not the CTCs). It works, but you're coming into the cylinder at a bit of an angle because the Tamer grip is a little in the way. Not exactly "speed" loading but a convenient way to carry reloads (as compared to loose rounds in your pocket) and certainly faster than inserting them one-by-one.

    There is a technique to use with the HKS loaders. As Mes pointed out, cant the loader so two rounds enter their respective charging holes in the cylinder then rotate to allow the others to enter their's. Turn the knob to release and they should fall into place. Safariland loaders hold the rounds more true to alignment with the cylinder and can be used with a different (straight in) technique.

    Great comments by all. Are there any specific model numbers for the HKS and Safariland loaders? I don't want to end up getting the wrong one, although it doesn't seem like there is a perfect solution.

    Have you considered the Bianchi Speedstrips?
