Hello. I recently purchased a Winchester Model 70 Alaskan, chambered in .30-06. I've been practicing loading it and unloading it, mostly with snap caps. I discovered that I'm able to load it from the bottom, meaning that I open the hinged floorplate, turn the rifle upside down and drop five rounds into the magazine opening, then insert the magazine follower and close the floorplate. I've never seen it done this way before, but it seems to work just fine and to be a little bit faster than opening the bolt and loading them from the top, like normal. Is there any reason not to do it this way? As a side note, the Winchester website and several retailers' websites list this rifle as having a 3+1 capacity, but it definitely holds 5+1. I emailed Winchester regarding this, but they haven't written back yet. Thanks.
