For instance, does the fire rate include reloading time?

Fire rate is strictly "maximum ammo used per 10 second interval." It doesn't account for reloading or charging time, and only accounts for burst fire/multiple projectiles if multiple rounds of ammo are consumed by them.

But what IS the given period of time? 1 second? 10 seconds? A minute? Does it vary for each weapon?
