    Well, there are many top shooters shooting RR guns. I've never seen where they were handicapped by it. You get one of those cartridge holders sitting right next to the loading port, and with an ejector, you can be just as fast.

    The ejector tends to make sure the cartridge is canted by whatever clearance is available.

    Wayne, my preference is a RB/RP.....given a decent sized loading port. On my RB/RP Panda I can pull the bolt back, toss a new round in and flick the old one out with my index finger tip as my hand is going back to close the bolt.

    But I'm getting used to my RB/LP/RE Panda. If I'm inconsistent with the bolt speed I can make it flip a case around inside or not kick it out completely...might have to look at lengthening the ejection port a skosh. I've also tossed a loaded round in the left and clean on out the right side a couple times!

    Both situations say more about the operator than the action, though.....

    Good shootin' -Al

    I like RR RE

    Both my 6 power guns are RRR's. My Rimrock however is LRR and I like that except for the limited amount of room on the left side, often, on benches. With a RRR, there is usually all the room one would ever want or need. Years ago I watched Kent Harshman shooting his RRR and realized how fast it was and how little effort he had to put into loading and unloading. I believe it was at a Nationals he won.

    The most important piece of equipment to have when “running them” is a good set of brakes and split vision to pick up a reversal and avoid a super wide group.
