on a side note, the most popular handgun for pistol shooting competitionsin the 1800s was the sw top break chambered in 44 russian, not withstanding that "odd" feel of how it feels in the hand.

I have read the US army test of the colt Vs S&W and Remington. If you drop the hammer between the chambers on a colt does it lock the cylinder like the S&W. If it does then I feel it would be safe to carry 6 in a cross draw holster. If you can't settle an argument with 5/6 rounds speed of reloading won't make much difference. At the little bighorn Custer's men had nothing to hide behind when reloading except perhaps dead horses. 10 seconds saved on ejection would hardly have effected the outcome.
