I distinctly recall being taught to use the bolt catch on reloads, back in 1990.
At some point, it was determined that using the bolt catch, although faster, was not as reliable as using the charging handle as it could result in a stoppage. So I guess someone decided to stop teaching it.
I remember the old drill...it was mag out, new mag in, bolt catch, forward assist.
