Sometimes when I reload he puts the magazine in and the gun looks like its loaded but then its empty.
There are no steps to reproduce it but it happens often enough.
It can happen for auto rifles mostly but I think I had it with a bolt too.

Most likely you did something to interrupt the reload (sprint or melee) before it was 100% complete.

I observed that a bit more and I think you could be right, however it feels really wrong that the bullets are not in the mag after you saw how they were put in.
They cant magically jump out when you made a wrong movement in the last sec of the reloading.

This bug is 100% reproducible and I believe it happens with all weapons (I've actually tested only the C-96, P-38, TT-33, MP-40, PPSH-41, MkB-42(h), KAR-98, MG-34 with drum and saddle, and DP-28). See my thread here: http://forums.tripwireinteractive.com/showthread.php?t=71982

Quick summary - the game only allows you to fire once the 'new magazine is full' subtitle has been shown. Even though the animation shows you reloading the weapon and cocking the action / closing the bolt, if you interrupt before the subtitle has appeared, your weapon will not fire and you need to complete the entire reloading animation again from the start to be able to fire again.

I haven't checked to see whether you can 'lose' ammunition clips when this happens but I don't think you do.
