Spring fatigue comes from cycling them not storing them........ I load um and leave um and never have had a problem

That is how I look at it as well.   I've never had a problem with mags in the last 30+  years.

Yup - load 'em and forget 'em.  No worries; it's the constant compression and release that wear them out.

I stored my glock and sig mags with two less rounds than full capacity for 10 years and they were fine and are still going strong 15 years after taking them out of storage.
