Sounds like you're on your way to developing some very bad habits. In doing a speed reload, you should not be using your weak hand for anything but getting the new magazine, inserting it and racking the slide to slingshot it into battery from slide lock (preferred) or hit the slide stop to drop the slide.

To see some well executed speed reloads see this video and this video.

If someone has trouble reaching the magazine release, one can learn to shift the gun slightly as shown in this video.
"It is long been a principle of ours that one is no more armed because he has possession of a firearm than he is a musician because he owns a piano. There is no point in having a gun if you are not capable of using it skillfully." -- Jeff Cooper
