Is this a bad idea? I don't shoot my SOCOM as often as I should, but I always like keeping whatever mags I have for all my firearms ready for instant use.

Does it do any harn to the mags themselves to always be loaded and not cycled through?

no, it is a great way to roll. What wears out mag springs is cycling, not preload. Keep em loaded. You will only wear them while shooting them.

The other 600 rounds are still in the crate. I just don't have enough mags to go around.

Hey Bro

Do a search. Type in magazine and you will find your answer, plus there is a mag. section here. Its ok to ask questions some here get tired of the often weekly or monthly repeat questions. Don't worry about it.

Does it do any harn to the mags themselves to always be loaded and not cycled through?



Is this truly necessary? Are you that bad of a shot?

Keeping any Magazines fully loaded will gradually weaken the Magazine Springs.

Not really. Seeing how I've been told one thing and then another about springs and mags. Thought maybe some of the veteran members in here would have the correct info.

You will get used to it. Poke around on the site some in every nook and cranny, surprising what you will find.

elastic hysteresis



it's the expanding and contracting that weakens the spring, not sitting static, loaded or empty.
loading and unloading mags is what wears them out.

i have no idea what hysteresis is, but it is of no concern to me.

Wouldn't 20 M1A mags be 400 rounds?

20 X 20 = 400????

Hey Sig-24-7....how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

Some guy told me a number the other day but I want to get some differing opinions from some experts.
