Like you had stated chamfer the chambers. Best thing you can do for using speed loaders. All you do is break the sharp edge of the chamber opening. I did my GP-100 and I now can use TCFP without issue along with RN

Chamfer the charge holes in the cylinder. That helps.

I shoot a S&W 15 in SSR class in IDPA matches once in a while. I use 130 grn RN-FMJ bullets in that application, because they work better with a speedloader. The round noses on the bullets make the rounds slip in a little easier and the jacket reduces problems with leading.
