Faster reloading??? Ummmm suuure.

I'll admit that I'm slower with CA arfrows than I am with target, but not by
much. I average 10 arrows in 30s on a target speed round, and about 8-9 CA

but then, I've been referred to as "a machine"

I've been hearing that unrealistic reload rates on lightweight crossbows (as
well as one-haded cocking, belly cocking, et al) are causes of some of the
current dislike of CA in some areas.
