Mike (aka “Bloke on the Range”) takes his 7.5mm Swiss M82/29 revolver, the last military “Abadie”-type gateloading revolver, to the range and pits it against a 1940’s Smith and Wesson M&P in .38 S&W to see just how much worse gateloading is than a swing out cylinder. Spoiler – even with the Abadie system, where pulling the trigger turns the cylinder, it sucks. The question is how much!
