Absolutely perfect advice by AZDAVE none of which I did!!! To his point it will not happen again…I will practice just as he describes!!!With a double I have always practiced loading both barrels. My ammo carrier is made so that two rounds are seperated from the next two round group, the two rounds fit between the three middle fingers of the hand and are positioned to pull and drop into the chambers. Before going on a DG hunt I practice this over and over with snap caps till I can do it in the dark.
With a ruger #1 Start with two between the fingers, and as you are at the zenith of the recoil pulse you are already pulling the action lever down and round in the chamber in a fluid motion. When I practiced that operation I could shoot 3 rounds quicker from a number 1 than I could from a bolt gun. However I have done that practice in a number of years and would be very rusty. But with work and good hand eye coordination it can be done.
