Husqvarna 4100 question

I am not very vell versed on the Mauser action. The Husqvarna 4100 has a Mauser like action (long claw, non-rotating extractor). Can this rifle safely be loaded by inserting a round in the chamber and closing the bolt on top of it, or does this subject the extractor to excessive force and possible breakage? Thanks.

It is an M1896 Mauser action and it is "control round fed". It must be loaded from the magazine. The rim slides up from the magazine into the extractor. It will not snap over the rim.

I'm the same fellow as Captain H (found my old password )
