Load your new mags to capacity and let them sit for a couple of weeks, unloading them and reloading once or twice during that time.

It seems to help relax the spring and generally alleviates the problem of first round FTF. Can't guarantee the results but it worked for me with a LW barrel. Apparently lots of people have had the same problem. Good luck. Jack
We purchased an UpLula a couple weeks ago for my wife who found loading her G17 mags not to her liking. I have to admit that I used it during our last GSSF match and the UpLula is a fine piece of gear! I did kind of miss the beefy look that my thumb gets after a day of loading G30 mags.

I'll load up my mags to capacity and let them sit to see if that helps. Thanks for the advice, Jack.
