Now, to figure out what "perfect" timing is for a Uberti 1858 Remington (as there is no approach milled into the cylinder) since that is something I more than likely can deal with.
Absolutely positively perfect would have the hammer going to full cock and the bolt dropping into the notch at exactly the same time which is doable. Once parts start to wear it won't take much for the bolt to start dropping on the edge of the notch and peening it. IMO it's best to time it to drop at least one full bolt width before the notch.
