Loading a bag charge instead of a single piece cased round halves your rate of fire, simple as that, No excuses and no reason to think otherwise. And in reality will work worse than 1/2 because of the sheer ergonomics of loading a tank round under stress. Which were even less acknowledged and and understood in WWII , than they are today.
100-120mm is understood as the upper limit of the size of a tank round, otherwise it will be two piece, and that don't work in a "any" tank. Really the Soviet 100mm D-10 AT round was the progenitor of every round used now in any tank in the world, and also is to the upper limit to the size of a round a tank crew can handle effectively.
