It's easier to put the cylinder in, because you can thumb the hammer back and watch the hand and bolt retract. Then you know you got the ' sweet spot' . Then hold the hammer still and roll in the cylinder, making sure there's a bolt stop above the bolt. The hard part is remembering exactly how far back the hammer was when you put the cylinder in, so you hit the same spot taking it out. for my Remington, it's just before half-cock. And depending which variation you have, it could be different.
