Most carry on their dominant hand side because unlike reloading an auto, speedloading the wheelgun requires simultaneously aligning six little cartridges with six little holes. It's more dexterity intensive, so most do better by allowing the more dextrous hand to perform the task.
And unlike ejecting a mag, ejecting the empties ties up both hands, so when one hand is finally freed up, it needs to get to the speedloader pronto. The quickest route is straight down, which just happens to be right in front of the holster.

Boy I can see this is going to take a bunch of practice.
Anyway you slice it, smooth revolver reloads take a bunch of practice. If you can, find a good SSR shooter to help you through the reload. The good news is that 1) lots of practice can be done at home and 2) the practice pays off handsomely.
