(Re)loading times of ranged weapons


Recommended Posts

Long-time lurker, first-time poster :)

I was wondering if the the Load number on ranged weapons specifies the no. of rounds just for loading the weapon, or can you actually shoot on the last of those rounds?

Flintlock pistol: I reload and fire on the 3rd or 4th round?

Short Bow: I shoot every other round or every round?

The Renaissance Black Powder SRD says

"Ranged weapons can be reloaded with this Action – this takes as many Combat Rounds as noted in the weapon’s description."

This implies that when it says 3 rounds to reload it means three full rounds and not fire at the end of the third but fire on your normal strike rank on the fourth turn.
