A BUG is the only way to 'reload' in a blindingly fast manner with an SA revolver. The guy is (relatively) fast at reloading, but not fast enough to prevent someone from advancing upon him, and ending him.

Schofield is easily faster.
Still not 'blindingly' fast.

The reload in Pale Rider (with an 1858 Remington) is faster than the guy shootng IPSC.

Some years ago, I read about a peace officer who had to qualify with any gun that he wanted to carry on duty. One of the guns he wanted to use was a Colt SAA but part of the qualification requirement involved a time limit and the course of fire included the need for reloading the gun, which made it a tough challenge.
To solve the problem, the story said that he brought some Desert Eagle magazines that he used as ammo carriers. After chucking out the empties, he could feed rounds from a magazine one by one into the chambers of his SAA. Probably not quite as quick as the OP's loading tubes but the officer did qualify with the SAA.
