Keeping AR mags loaded.?
I have never had a problem with aluminum AR mags but plastic mags are a different matter. I only have one but if kept loaded, the lips definitely swell out and make it a very tight fit. After removing the rounds and letting the mag sit for a day or so, it went back to it's original shape and no more problem. For just pleasure shooting, the plastic mag works great. But I don't think I would want to have to carry it around loaded for very long.
If you want to keep mags loaded, you can experiment with the plastic but I now stick with metal mags.
