When I first got my gun, I was having the same issue and sought out a solution, finding this post. It seemed like, with bb's in the clip, chambering the first round via the charging handle would not prime the gun. The return spring on the bolt did not seem to have enough power to travel all the way forward to a set firing position.
Without finding a solution online, I "solved" this problem by lubing the crap out of the bolt/chamber/charging handle, which was a bit dry on the brand new gun. It loosened up a bit, and after working the action a bit, seems to chamber the first round correctly now. The travel still seems restricted, however, and chambering the first round is not a satisfying snap. I hope it will continue to break in.
If anyone has a more permanent solution to this problem, I'd love to hear it. I hope hollywood ended up finding a solution.

Be sure you're releasing the charging handle at the very end of it's travel and you're not riding it forward. Even if no BB loads with charging the gun it should still fire (a "blank") and chamber the next BB.
The danger with all Gas-guns is double charging. There's no extractor so it's easy to cycle the gun even if there's a BB in the chamber and stuff two in there. Always check the chamber for a BB before cycling the bolt.
