First Strike Pump question

Hey guys, I'm a pump noob, and was hoping you guys could help me. I was reading about the Empire Tracer and it said it has a "First strike compatible breech." I had been under the impression that you could only really use first strike rounds with mag fed, but can you generally use them in a pump, as well? How does that work and would they work in an empire sniper, as well?

You can hand load FS rounds in Trracers, the hole for the balls to drop into under the feedneck is shaped to accept FS rounds. As far as I know you need to load the individually into the Trracer.

I think the new Kingman Hammer 7 has first strike magazines as a pump, maybe try looking at that.

you can load pretty much any mid or half block with FS rounds. we've done it with T2's and Empire snipers. but you need to pull the bolt out and manually load in one shot at a time from the back of the breech, put your bolt back in, and then your ready to shoot. its a pain.

Could you load a first strike round by just dropping it in the barrel, tilting the marker vertically so it won't feed, and then pumping? So long as your barrel is overbored enough that the round is nearly all the way down, I don't see why it wouldn't get enough velocity. Seems a bit easier than taking the bolt out.

You'd could probably muzzle load but with a pump overboring that much would make shooting normal paint rather difficult with the insane amount of rollouts you'd have.

I would bet you'd need some sort of ram rod.

I can't wait until I'm such a bada** on the field that I have to muzzle load to make it interesting!

Revolutionary war reenactments anyone?
