Looking for advice on a speedloader for a Ruger LCR 357 magnum. Any help would be much appreciated. Want to know which one to buy

I use the UpLULA. Probably the best and fastest speed loader on the market. It will work with many different mags and calibers. Most gun shops have it for about $40. You can find it on Amazon for under $30. I love it. 20160813_161720.jpg

I'm thinking the LRC is a revolver, so although I really like the UpLula, it's not going to be much help here.

I think HKS makes a LCR speed loader I'm not sure if a J frame speed loader will work. you could always go to either the 6 or 8 round speed strips.

I can't remember which one exactly, but it was made by Safariland and it was spring loaded. When the ejector made contact with the speed loader, it ejects them into the cylinder.

SpeedBee and 5 Star both make them for the LCR. I have not tried either but will be buying one soon to fit the LCR in 22 Mag. Good Luck DR

Just bought 2 of the HK #36 5-round speedloaders on eBay for $8 apiece. They are for a J-frame 38/357 revolver so check to see which model would work for the Ruger if you look there. I also have a Safariland model (mentioned above) that absolutely DEFIES popping the cartridges into the cylinder! I've tried to like it but just cannot. The HK with its turn knob always works.

I've got the HKS,Safariland and 5 Star. The 5 Stars work the best. But I carry speed strips because they are easier to carry and not that slow with a little practice.

I think I'll go with speed strips. Been doing some research and the strips seem to be the way to go

buy quality speed loaders. love the hks brand hold up great. easy to work. (smith and wesson 340 and 686, taures 85)

look into your grips. stock rubber grips on my j frame gave me fits, now using a crimson trace laser grip and everything flows perfectly.

also what type of bullet are you using? tip shape can be part of the problem of easy feeds.

I just bought a speedloader from 5 Star Firearms. Quality equipment. I'm practicing reloads daily to get good at using it. I also use speed strips.

I prefer the Safariland Comp I's for those. They hold the rounds better and deploy faster than any of them but Speed Bees for that gun.


I use speed strips to hold extra ammo, but I am no fan of them for trying to reload under pressure.
