    Been considering picking up some speed strips for my LCR. Several brands out there, all about the same price. Any input on them quality wise?

    I've been carrying Tough Quickstrips for years in .38 and .44 spl. I've found them to be reliable and remain pliable after many years. I can't see that there's any issues with their .22 product. If I was to make a purchase, that's what I'd buy. I've also carried the Bianchi .38 strips but I don't know if they make one in .22. I like them just fine, too. Just my .02

    I have use the Tuff Products and Bianchi as well. I have not noticed any difference in quality. If you use them enough, they will all eventually break. But they are cheap and easily replaced. I try to keep three or four extra sets of each caliber on hand so when one breaks I can just get another one out of the package

    Thanks. I reckon I'll stop in at Gary's tomorrow and see if they have the Tuff strips in stock. I did find out that there is a slight difference between the .22lr and .22wmr strips due to the larger wmr rim. Also Bianchi doesn't make strips for either .22lr or .22wmr from what I could find out. So that kind of limits the choice.

    Can't remember my brand right off hand but 1 broke and one hasn't so guess like Joe said eventually they all will.

    For sure. I use them a lot. I even carry rifle cartridges on them for my single shots.

    Got some strips today from Tuff. .22mag and .38.

    Spent a little time trying them out in my LCR (.22mag). I like 'em. Just taking my time I was able to unload and reload the cyl. in about 6 sec. :) Decided to load them as shown rather than 10. :)
