Best Speed Loader: Know All About It

An engaging time at the shooting range can be easily marred by the excruciating pain of constantly loading rounds inside a magazine with the help of mere hands. The sore the hands, the less is the frequency of the loading. That is when a speed loader comes to your rescue.

What is Speed Loader?

A speed loader is a way to reduce the efforts invested in reloading a firearm. Whether it is a revolver or a rifle or shotgun, speed loaders are used to load various sections of a revolver. The first speed loader was invented way back in 1879.

Types of Speed Loaders:

  • Circular loaders: The circular speed loader has a full store of cartridges in a designated fashion. The cartridges are dropped into the circular arrangement of cylinders which are placed in a secure manner. Once the revolver is loaded, a mechanism allows the speed loader to release cartridges, in order to ensure that the cartridges are properly housed inside the cylinder.
  • Moon Clips: Revolvers that have cartridges having no rim work with these moon clip speed loaders. These cartridges are mostly used by dual action revolvers. The shape of moon clips is circular used to hold a complete cartridge circle while half-moon clips are semi-circular holding half-circles.
  • Speed Strips: This is another form of speed loaders used in revolvers. There is a plastic strip made of neoprene that is used to hold six cartridges. It is reusable.
