Here is a good video showing the loading procedure for the M249.

I'm going to disagree with you a bit 44 AMP. From my understanding you NEVER NEVER NEVER reload a M249 with the bolt forward. You always retract the bolt before poping the cover.

The reason is that it is a bad habit to get into. If you pop the cover with the bolt forward after shooting, you potentially have the bolt forward on a dud round which could cook off while the cover is open.
I don't carry a gun to go looking for trouble, I carry a gun in case trouble finds me.
