I recently purchased some HK 30 round magazines and am curious if it will damage them in any way if I stored them loaded. I store my weapon and 8 mags in a pelican case. Will it hurt the mag in any way by storing them loaded? Will it decrease the life of the spring or anything else? Thanks in advance for any help or info!

no
loading and unloading mags is what weakens springs.

for $50-60 they should come with lifetime lasting springs.

For that price they had better do all those things for you that your girlfriend won't!

I was thinking dishes and laundry and stuff.

They are self-loading, Mine was empty the other day and I just looked at it and was full

It wont hurt them to be loaded but with them being steel storing them in a foam lined case may. It may also cause corrosion on your rifle as well.
