    38 Spec. / .357 Mag stripper clip (7.62 X 39)

    I recently bought 2 speed loaders for my SP101. They will work nicely however they are bulky for pocket carry and I really don't want to carry them in a belt holder. So I was wondering what other options I had other than carrying loose cartridges in my pocket. Then I remembered that I use the same shell holder for my .357 Mag as I do for my 7.62 X 39 SKS. I loaded 10 .357 mag cartridges in a SKS stripper clip and PRESTO a ten shot stripper clip that is flat in my pocket for the SP101 and for a lot less money than a 5 shot speed loader.

    How fast can you get the rounds off the clip into the gun for a reload? if you have to push them out the end it looks like it could be slow going? Still, pretty inventive!

    Not as fast as a speed loader but faster than loose rounds. You don't have to remove them from the stripper clip to reload the revolver. Just insert each cartridge in to a chamber and slide the stripper clip off of it. Goes pretty fast after you practice a few times.

    That's an interesting idea. I use Bianchi Speed Strips myself, no pointy edges.

    You know, I've never been able to figure out why Bianchi or someone doesn't make a 5 round speed strip? With all the J frame revolvers our there, why doesn't someone market a 5 shot strip? And why don't don't more folks make belt pouches for the speed strips? Can't figure this for the life of me!

    A friend of mine who's a retired cop and leather guy says he carrys 6 in it because you always drop one. Made sense to me, and I do so just in case.
    Simply Rugged makes a great belt pouch for $25 shipped pretty quickly. Just got mine a week or so ago and will never go without it! Nice thing is it works with any caliber and with/without speed strip.

    I configure mine - 3-0-2. The 2 end is easier to grab & load that way rather than having all 5 in a row.
