Thanks for the link. Good article though I would argue that the bolt is much slower especially when adreline come in to play. I love lever guns also but over the years have found that a well practiced bolt gun is quick on fwp shots.
............Yep! The lever is a faster action and should give you the same velocity performance in a shorter barrel as does the bolt.

Have fun!
