Hunting maybe, but a competent hunter would expect to dispatch their quarry in one shot, not blatt away in the hope one will connect.
When I am out shooting rabbits I am often presented with a chance of a second shot when Bugs is looking at his mate wondering why he has gone to sleep, for years I have single loaded my rifles as none of the magazines I tried ever grouped worth a shhhite resulting in a much healthier rabbit population than the farmers required.. The Steyr groups great small rapid fire groups the size of a five pence piece at 40yds the norm without even trying. The bar magazine is a work of engineering art and sizes all the pellets as you place them in it.

It is also fun fun fun.

Because it is not about how, but how many.
