We were both shooting factory ammo straight out of boxes and without any accessories such as Uplulas, loading trays, or speed loaders, and I never said anything about interim clean-ups. Also, we weren’t in a race to dump as as much lead down range as possible. My apologies if I was unclear, but when I said ‘faster/easier,’ I actually mean less overall work. I just thought it was an interesting dichotomy - while a semi can certainly throw more lead faster in a SD situation, at a range (where most, if not all, shots are fired), a revolver is, overall, less work and that’s one of the things I really like about them. Guess this thread is about how badly handicapped revolvers are in the real world.
