Does anyone have problems with keeping their magazines loaded for extended periods of time? I keep my XD40 12 round magazine loaded with 10 rounds of Federal Hollow Points at all times. I was wondering if Springfield magazines are easily susceptible to spring fatigue. How often should I cycle the magazines if ever? Thanks.

when I got my pistol, it came with two 10 round magazines. I only loaded them with 7 rounds because like you, I had been warned about metal fatigue. Unfortunately, I was misinformed. I started having problems with the magazine not ejecting from the frame (when full) because the springs were so damn tight!

I pack those babies full! I also have a 15 round mag that is loaded to the hilt... It took several days to break that magazine in.. After shooting it.. I just load her up, then let it rest for a couple of days, then shoot it again, then load her up... It seems to work.
