Mini 30's, (and Mini 14, m14, M1a, M1 carbine, M1 Garand) have no bolt release. You have to "slingshot" the bolt to chamber that first round. I usually use this method on AR'a to save wear on the bolt catch. You will find tugging the operating rod and letting it fly forward is a very satisfying feeling.
