    Picked up a roll of that new 3M speedstrip.

    It’s a little different than those old, clunky, thick, expensive speedstrips that your Boomer great-grandparents use.

    So it’ll probably take a little practice to get proficient, but here’s only my second go at it:



    Not too bad, huh?

    They’ve got them in .32 H&R as well:

    Hopefully they’ll be coming out with more calibers soon!

    Hard to tell by the pics, looks like a piece of tape to me.

    Yeah, I was being silly.

    I just happened to discover you can “speed strip” an infinite X 5 number of reloads with 3M duct tape, and they work pretty well and reload fairly fast

    Got me. At least these old eyes still work a little.

    I got a chuckle out of it!

    Are those 32s loaded backwards?

    Yes. It’s a mix of wadcutters and backward wadcutters

    Here's a speed strip design I've been working on. It should allow faster reloads and be pretty durable.

    I would be afraid that tape residue or bits of torn off tape would adhere to the cartridges and keep them from seating in the cylinder.

    I somehow expected it to be a joke when I saw 3m. It was much more tasteful of a joke than I was expecting. I expected something akin to a drive-in gentleman’s club.
