Can a BLR chamber a round fed from the ejection port or does it have to be fed from the mag?

I'm thinkin a BLR takedown would be a sweet all purpose rifle. With pump shotgun i can fire 6rds from the side saddle faster than stuffing the tube. Was thinking of a shotcard and sme velcro and i could accomplish the same thing. But with a rifle!

I'm sure it would load, but not as fast as a pump shotgun.

Why not ?
The extractor is spring loaded.
Should work just fine. I think you may have more trouble with the smaller size of the rounds and handling them. The shotgun rounds are a nice size to manipulate.

After thought...may encounter feed lip interference from the magazine. Not as easy to flop a round through the opening and have it lay in the right position for chambering.

Try it.

But "should" be faster than popping the mag and reloading the mag.

I need to make a dummy and go shopping!

But "should not" be faster than popping the mag and replacing the mag with a fresh, fully loaded spare mag. If you're really concerned about the fastest possible reload, why not buy aanother magazine? That's kind of the whole point to a detachable box magazine, right?

At 65+ a mag, for something that holds 4rounds, just tryin to think outta the box.

The right tool for the right job. Sometimes what's in the box is in the box is there for good reasons. $65 is pricey, but in the context of a $1230 MSRP rifle not designed for high volume fire fights (as in, how many mags do you need?), it's not that unbearable for a one time, bite the bullet and forget about it expense.

It's a matter of opinion, but a $65 mag is worth at least $65 more to me than the alternatives on the BLR.
