I made my own loading strips from thick rubber gasket material by punching them out with a hammer and spent .38 case.

And here's a closer look at the strips:


When I first tried making the strips, I used cut them out of a plastic butter tub lid and they worked pretty well, though after a couple weeks of being in the pocket, they broke. Then, I found this thick rubber gasket materil in my father-in-law's plumbing box and filched enough to make a couple strips. You might be able to try different materials and find one that works for you.

I originally made a couple sets of these for myself. After considering the defensive costs of a potential lawsuit from Aqualung for copywrite infringement I decided to purchase a set of Bianchi strips. To be honest, the Bianchi strips release a lot faster and carry better (no curl).

I want 50% of the profits you made off yours...

I found in "development" that the curl comes from how close the rounds' rims are together. If they're touching, you get the curl.

As long as your willing to subsidize the marketing costs?

I agree with your curl hypothesis.

As another has posed here, I've never had great luck using speed loaders. Like anything else, practice makes perfect. I've heard good things about the Speedbeez, though.

LCR speed strips

My Ruger LCXR .38 Special +p I just use the Bianchi Speed Strips load them up with 5 rounds each. My Ruger SP101 3 inch .327 I also have a Speed Strip type of loader but not made by Bianchi these work for the .327 FM. Also have SKS Speed Loaders for both revolvers but I still use the speed strips!!! I guess I need to call my SP101 the 6 shot stainless Revolver no matter!!!

They don't fit well and require some wiggling to ensure the rounds drop into the cylinder. For a match, I prefer the speedbeez. They seem to hold the rounds fairly well and hold them ridged.
