Are revolvers used in Bullseye matches?

First topic message reminder :

I recently searched YouTube for, "Bullseye pistols."
A result pictured a revolver.

Are revolvers now used in Bullseye matches?

Actually I would suggest taking the 6 inch for 2 reasons.  The sight radius is already long enough and (hopefully) one day DR revolver will once again allow .45!  

But remember, I don't shoot revolvers in matches anymore.  After getting DR, I left the devil's playground of round guns and returned to bliss of 1911's.

Why?

Because you have a much better chance of getting a gun with correct size cylinder throats.

How much do you think big throats degrade accuracy

Don't know how much, but it can't be good.   I have 2 Model 25-5's in .45 Colt; one has .4545" throats and the other has correct .452" throats.   I size the bullets for the one with large throats to .455".

If you have a mixed bag of pistols, 1911s, revolvers etc, you can get improved accuracy by choosing bullets with long bearing surfaces.  The  185 cast bullets that Have a shorter bearing surface like the Magnus 808 probably won’t shoot very well.  This was one of the reasons for the inaccuracy of the 1917 revolvers as the GI RN bullet has a short bearing surface and the bullets tipped all over the place.

How does one shoot a double action pistol in timed or rapid fire?

Personally I don’t stage the trigger. I pull straight through.

I have always wanted to shoot one of the Chiappa revolvers . They seem like they are VERY expensive though. Anyone use these for BE matches or shoot one personally? Here is a link to one that is .45acp. Maybe some day I will get one for my .3rd gun in the BE game if it could work in the rapids ( I don't have a 45 cal).

I didn't shoot double action for timed and rapid.  No need to for bullseye.  
I shot single action, cocking for each shot for timed and rapid fire.  Not plenty of time, but enough time to do it right.  It worked for me.

I've read about the 'cocking on recoil' technique, but have never attempted to learn how that works.  I have a S&W 586 (square butt) that will accept Nills target grips.  Being somewhat goofy, I'll probably get some SW041 Nils grips and try that out with light HBWC 38 loads.  It would be good if someone documented (youtube?) the 'cocking on recoil' technique.


p.s. Chiappa firearms handles the FAS Italian (Domino?) sport pistols, but apparently doesn't import them into the US - probably due to not having a safety or trigger lockout hole (but, that is speculation on my part).  The FAS 607 is the .22lr pistol suitable for Bullseye shooting; note this has nothing to do with revolvers.

I would not describe it as "cocking on recoil" but you cock the gun with the firing hand thumb as you are returning to the firing position after each shot.  The gun does not move in the hand, only the thumb moves.

There was a shooter from Mass. who shot revolvers in the 2700, his name is Babe Magnum. Used a 22,38 and 45, all S&W, broke 2650 at the Regional in Rochester, NY in the 1980s. Then He shot mid 280s or better in the leg match with a 1911 using White Box Ball ammo.

I do like Cecil does. Gun does it's thing, thumb does its thing, finger does its thing.

Thanks for the feedback on the 'cocking on recoil' action.  I've never had a ND, and strive to never do, so cocking the revolver while it's not pointed down range is right out.
