My factory 10rd mags and the Redball have very similar followers and when loaded the bullets seems to sit the same way.

I DO know enough to tap/rap my mags, I have 3 other guns that have magazines and none have exhibited this behavior.

try pushing the nose of the Red ball follower, I can't make my Red Ball nose dive ...from what I can tell the Red Ball follower is a solid piece of plastic about 1/2 thick

My S&W mags won't nose dive , I've shot a couple of thousand rounds through them

My Mossberg mags don't nose dive

The Hi-Point magazine follower is just a poor design, the gun shoots great ...I think they should either redesign the follower or outsource the magazine to someone that can make it work every time

I had the exact same problem, and what solved it for me was the same thing I did with my magazines in the military. If it said 30 Rounds, I loaded 28. Same here. If it says 10, I load 9. I've also gotten into the habit of tapping the magazine lightly before loading, just like I was trained to do with the M-16.

I also keep them clean, and make sure there's no grim build up (You'd be amazed at the junk that can build up at the bottom or sides of one).

I'm happy to say that I have had very few mis-feeds since I've started doing this.

Yep!
Your complaint is one that's been stated many times by HP owners.
The HP 9 mm mags are crappy, and just reinforces the description of the gun as "cheap".
HP is aware of the complaints.
They either:
A. Think they work good enough.
B. Don't give a sh!t.
C. Are too cheap to design a new follower.
D. All of the above.
Which is why I prefer to use ProMag magazines in my 995.
They work consistently with no follower problems.
After years of use I've never had any damage from one.
And no, the possible loss of the warranty isn't a concern to me.

I have had 0 problems with any of my magazines... 115gr to 125gr fmjs and a 20+ year old 995 Classic.

after bending the follower , zero misfeeds or jams on the next trip to the range. I didn't do anything different as far as loading them.
