Ever watch a good shooter in a match? You might miss the reloads. How did they get that fast, that smooth or that good? Practice, yes, but what kind?

Which is fine if you have the particular knack that med schools sort for, but that doesn’t necessarily work for the rest of us.
The analogous method would be learning the basics of a reload, then spending many hours doing reloads at the fastest speed possible. Let me save you some time: You’ll be awful, and you’ll get frustrated.
