I don't know if "better" is a good comparison of one over the other.

Both have advantages and drawbacks...

The R&S does have a bit longer grip, heavier frame, larger arbor, but the short action and the lack of lead into the cylinder notches can make the cylinder skip chambers if actioned briskly- which is a major drawback IMHO. The high hammer and position of it doesn't lend it well for one-handed operation for quick firing either.

In the Remington, the arbor is captive, it is easier to manipulate one-handed, parts and cylinders are much more available and generally cheaper, and it is solid frame.

Both guns are good ones- just personal preference.
