Charging Handle Bullet Chambering System Concept

Bolt action is going to be too specific to describe the action of loading a bullet in such a way as to increase power so I'm just going to call it chambering. Bolt action chambering was done through the use of two separate pins and "barrels". The magazine loaded ammo into a separate area and then was pushed into the barrel by the bolt pin. This works pretty well but it's a little complicated and some potential accelerating space is wasted with the bolt. I wanted to simplify the action of chambering a round for max power. Why not just have one barrel? 

I made a powerpoint to demonstrate the concept. There are still a few problems I need to figure out before I can work on such a gun such as how the trigger would work and how to keep the ammo in the magazine down. I have ideas for both but nothing that I'm 100% sure of. If anyone would like to try this concept out, PM me.

You can download the powerpoint here. (make sure you play through it, don't just scroll through the slides)

What prevents another rod from coming out of the mag once the pin is back and the charging handle is forward?

What prevents people from reading a topic? I said I was still trying to figure that out. My first idea was simply to have a blocking device over it that would be pushed back by the charging handle. I don't know if that would work. I'm just throwing ideas out there for others to think about. Don't expect everything out of me to be foolproof.
maybe just have the power transfer bar stop in the middle of the mag? or make it work sort of like a lever action just for the mag?theres a basic plan of how it should look/work hope i was able to help some
Wow chill out, I didn't read the topic, so what.

So what? I explained in the thread that I didn't know what to do with the magazine yet. Don't ask me stupid questions just because you're too lazy to read. That's all I ask.
Man people are so uptight nowadays.

Because we have reason to be. Seriously, how hard is it to take a couple minutes of your time and just read? Are you more special than me? I find it insulting that you feel you don't need to look for the answer yourself but rather have me do that for you.
It was one time, chill out.

Oh no it happens to me all the time. You don't deserve any special treatment compared to everyone else. It's not like I'm even yelling at you. I'm just typing words with minimal humor. Does that bother you?
