The first time I took my 9mm carbine to the range, I fired away to my heart's content without a single problem. But I got tired of pressing rounds into the magazine with my thumb, a far easier job on my 7 round .380 capacity pistol than on the 9mm 10 round capacity HiPoint magazine, and bought an UpLula loader. My thumbs have thanked me. The first day I used the reloader I had a significant number of fail-to-feed issues. I even posted about it here, thinking that the feed ramp may have needed polishing. I haven't got around to doing that yet. In the meanwhile I read that the position/angle of cartridges in the magazine can sometimes cause loading problems. Hmmm...thought I. So, could there be a connection? I haven't been to the range in a long while...busy...so I haven't had the opportunity to test this out first hand. That will happen eventually. In the meantime, I'm curious if anyone has heard of or has had a similar experience. If there is a connection...is there a cure?
