PlumberjimC, My primary carry / home gun is a Model 640. I don't carry a speed loader but I have two of them on my nightstand.
At the range I use a 2" Model 63 to simulate the feel of my 640 and I have several "HKS 22J" speed loaders so I can practice manipulating them. The .22 loaders are a little harder to get in place than the "HKS 36" which I use for my 640. But I think that could be a good thing, from my standpoint of practicing.
When you use a speed loader with a .22 LR, you will find that you have to run a brush through each chamber every 3 to 5 times. They dirty up rather quick and gravity alone will no longer pull the round into the cylinder.
You can find them at most gun shops for around 8 to 10 dollars. I have gotten three from "junk boxes" for $5.00 each.
