Hi Abbo1993. Thanks for trying the alpha and sorry you're having this problem. To load ammo, the weapon must be in an equipped slot. Then you drag and drop the ammo into the weapon slot. It must be the right type for the gun. If this doesn't work, give me a little detail, and I'll fix it for the next update!
