WOIN [Question] Archery and exploits

1- "loading" an arrow onto a bow is an action?
2- Rapid shot. Your rate of fire increases; once per turn you can fire two shots instead of one.
Stand your ground. As long as you do not move, you can plant arrows in the ground and loose two shots every action.
So if loading is an action then Stand works exactly like a Rapid in both cases, you shoot twice per turn.
3- Double shot. You notch two arrows and let both fly simultaneously. Each must be directed at a different target, and both targets must be within 10' of each other. You cannot combine this ability with any other exploits.
Why take Double if Rapid does the same without limits?

So Rapid shot shoot 3 times in a turn or shoot 2 times and something other
Stand your ground shoot 4 times and do not move in turn or shoot 2 times and you do something other than move
Double shot shoot 2 times but at different targets 10' of each other and you do something else or repit first one
So Double shot does the same as Rapid= shoot 2 times and something other but with limits, and
does the same as Stand= shoot 4 times and do not move but with limits
So if my conclusion is correct this is a worse version of other exploits?

You may use every active exploit only once per turn; so it has great benefit owning both to shoot four arrows.
Also, sometimes there are very similar or even exactly same career and universal exploits so non-archer specialists can do some fancy arrow-stuff too, without intention to getroffen both exploits within one character.

Thanks for the answers, it explained a lot to me.
I have one last question:
In book pdf Rapid shot is you can fire two shots at a single target instead of one and on WOIN Rules Reference Document there is no excerpt about single target shooting- which version is correct?

I bet they're both correct ;-)
I didn't look in the books but it's a General exploit in all three of them - so they could be different AND correct.
