"Insignificance" or "significance"? If lock time were insignificant, why does it take "highly skilled" shooters to shoot a Sharps at 600? Isn't it likely these shooters would tell us that it is these conditions (slow bullet & lock time) that provide a particularly tough added challenge.

I'm all for curiosity. Some might presume it means the asker is merely looking for a short cut around good technique. There is no short cut, of course, but knowledge strengthens one's foundation, IMO.
