    I saw a video with a expert shooter shooting targets with a single action revolver. He shot two targets so fast it seemed like it was only one shot. The video had to be played in slow motion to see he actually fired two separate shots.

    Have you seen any lever action rifle experts out there? Any good links or information...

    Demonstration shooters like the late Bob Munden and CAS shooters are the ones who go for speed.
    They use a combination of MUCH practice, light loads, and (in leverguns) frequently modified actions.

    What are you looking for?

    exhibition shooters shoot nearly 250,000 rounds developing a single act. most exhibitions can have up to 30 different challenges and they generally try to come up with at least 2 new acts per year to make sure that the show doesn't turn stagnant. that's a whole lot more rounds than many people want to deal with in a lever action but it is often the slowest actions that get the most cheers when you shoot them fast.
