    Hi guys,

    Just wanted your suggestions on which speed loaders work the best for a .38 special standard LCR with the Hogue Tamer grips? Ruger has one on their website and I was wondering if anyone had any experience with it. Thanks !

    The one for my J frame S&W .38 spl. work in my .357 LCR. I asume it will also work in the .38 spl. LCR. They are HKS brand IIRC.

    I haven't tried the HKS, but the J2 line from 5 Star Firearms work great. They even have 'LCR' etched on them. The cost is about twice that of the HKS. You can get them in different colors or a zombie design.

    Another vote for the 5 star firearms speed loaders. I have them for my 357 LCR and my 22 LCR. I also have the HKS 36A's. They are OK but, the other ones are better.

    Hks

    Wife loves hers so much the same 10 130Gr. RN's are in them(she has 2) for close to 6 months. "Honey, why don't you practice with your speed loaders?" " Because I'm saving them for an emergency" was her answer. So today when "Rotating Ammo" in our carry guns I took the RN's out and replaced them with some of the Hornady Critical Defense Lite's.....:cool:

    I favor the 5 Star for my LCR357, but prefer the Safariland for my SP101 and S&W model 36.

    I use the speedloaders from HKS made for the S&W J frames. They seem to work fine in all of the LCR's that I have had.

    Ended up getting a HKS-36A for Christmas and it works pretty well. May not go all the way down in the cylinder, but it gets the job done.

    Just get the 5-Star. I'm always surprised that people will say they use the HKS-36A and it works pretty well or it's close enough. "Pretty well" or "close enough" is saying it doesn't fit, the 5-Star does fit.

    Like I said, The HKS speed loaders have always worked just fine for all 3 of my LCR's.

    I use the HKS-36A, it fits my LCR .357 and loads without any type of hangups or problems. I when I carry the LCR I have 2 HKS-36A Speed loaders with me.

    Five Star. Everything else is second best.

    I got an HKS from the Ruger store and it works but I wasn't happy so I ordered a couple 5 Star and they work fantastic on my LCRx. The 5 Star are well worth the price.

    Because of the diameter of the 5 Star speedloaders they work best, the rounds go straight into the charge holes.
