I take what n0e says way too seriously

Ok here is some compiled information which shows not only the inaccuracy but how much the rifles of FH are inbalanced.
The German K98 bolt-action rifle has a rate of fire of fifteen rounds a minute. In FH the K98 has a rate of fire of twenty-nine rounds a minute counting reloads and fourty-seven +/- five rounds a minute without counting reload time.

The British(and other Commonwealth troops) Lee-Enfield No.4 has a rate of fire of between eight accurate to twenty rounds a minute. In FH the No.4 has a rate of fire of fourty-six rounds a minute counting reloads and 60+ rounds a minute without counting reload time.

The American M1 Garand has a rate of fire of sixteen to twenty-four rounds per minute. In FH the M1 Garand shots seventy rounds a minute counting reloads and 88+ without counting reloads.

Now you must keep in mind some of the sources are for accurate shots(mainly the Garand) but nearly every shot still is accurate anyways(for the K98 by the time I took another shot the crosshair had already narrowed to one pixel). So the system definetly needs some improvements.
I think that the bolt action rifles should only be able to be reloaded after all the shots have been fired.

That makes no sense at all.

The Garand..16-24 rounds a minute? Yea..if its sniper rifle. For general combat the Garand is going to be popping off alot more than that. You cant take aiming into consideration because it dosent slow down the guns rate of fire, it just means the person shooting is pulling the trigger less, the gun is able to fire much more than that. But yes, the No.4 rifle couldent fire much at all,it was insanly slow.
GuRu10That makes no sense at all.
It makes perfect sense your average rifleman using bolt action rifle would not reload his rifle while there were still bullets in the magazine.

Yes, well you see, YOU are the soldier. YOU choose what you want to do. In real life YOU could reload if you wanted to.

The deal is it is very hard to load stripper clips if there are already rounds in the magazine.
So? You could still reload it if you wanted to. Unless it was the garand of course.

Do not change the accuracy, do not turn this into a CS.
