How slow

Quote:
ask how slow because
You want to go slow enough so that you can detect the bolt engaging the stop in the cylinder before the hammer/sear lock up. Ideally, the cylinder should stop turning and be in full lockup with the bolt just before the hammer is caught by the sear.

After doing this with a few revolvers you'll kind of get a feel for it and even be able to discern differences in different revolvers.
