Both rounds can be loaded using either method. The tube is nice for loading and unloading the rifle completely, while the loading gate allows a shooter to top off the magazine while keeping the firearm ready and in battery.
Aim small, miss small.

They had to stop the magazine tube from departing the receiver. This is the arrangement that they came up with to have a threaded tube. Personally, and with both my 454 and 480 having it, I find it very handy as a hunter to drop the remaining ammo out of the rifle.
