lawton action speed of cycling

hi Guys coming from a big game rifle background, just wondering how quickly these big target actions like the lawton 8000 can be cycled.
Can it be worked quickly as in for backup shots, as in as fast as say a dangerous game rifle off a custom mauser, or wby Mk V? Not regarding length of the action, more a question of smoothness and feeding.
Apologise if its a ridiculous question but I have no experience in these type of actions...yet.

The 8000 can be cycled as fast as any other action, but I certainly would not recommend the 8000 action for a dangerous game rifle!
Too may issues with reliable extraction...

Thanks for the reply. Any chance you could expand on that?

Does it regularly fail ?

Thanks,
Karl

Yes we had a bad batch of extractors that did not work very well combined with a new spring setup should have this fixed. We dont mind hearing these problems because we want to make our stuff as good as we can for everyone.
