What I'm wondering is does it adversely affect your gun if you load it with the bolt forward and then just pull and release the charging handle to load a BB? Isn't that what the charging handle is for? Also, I assume your NOT supposed to just hit your bolt catch like in Call Of Dougie. Any clarification on this would be greatly appreciated.
With RS, hitting the bolt catch is a good technique and will prevent jamming. If you bring your bolt foward with the charging handle, that will cause a jam unless you ''unlock'' the charging handle and let the bolt travel full speed with the buffer's spring.

With a GBBR it's a bit the same thing. The only difference is that you might end up with a broken nozzle if you don't reload properly.

You want a fast chambering action to prevent jamming aka nozzle breaking.
