So if you had a S&W 627 Pro 8 shot revolver and went to the range to target practice or to hunt some where in NY.....you could only legally load 7 rounds in the revolver ?
There is a narrow exception for a sanctioned competition being held at a shooting range, but otherwise, you are correct.

As a Brit who knows a thing or two about ill-informed, over-the-top, knee-jerk legislation, this strikes me as utterly pointless... If someone has a revolver capable of holding 8 rounds or more and is of a mind to misuse it... they're hardly going to be put off loading the cylinder to capacity just cos they're not allowed to load more than 7 rounds... Or is there something obvious that I've missed?
Yes, it's pointless - heartily agreed - no, you haven't missed anything.
