Ok, have a question that I'm having a hard time finding an answer. Is it safe to unload a magazine then reload the magazine back with the same shells? The only reason I ask is that I keep my pistol loaded with HP and when it comes time to shoot some targets, I would rather use some plinking ammo, not my good expensive HP. I've heard/read that there is the potential to damage the shells by taking them out and putting them back into the magazine. So, is it safe for me to unload the HP's, do some plinking, then load the HP's back into the magazine? What's your all's thoughts on this?

I would do what my LE buddies do and have extra mags. Leave the HPs in the carry mag(s) and use other range mags for target shooting. They clear the HP ammo every once in a while anyways for re-qualifying. Also you really wont damage a cartridge by putting them in and out of the mag. The damage or wear will occur from chambering and re-chamering the same cartridge.
Hope that helps!

I cannot think of a reason why there would be anything wrong with unloading and reloading the same ammunition in the same magazine other than having tired thumbs. I too would consider buying extra magazines, just so you wouldn't have to perform the laborious task of unloading then reloading. Depending on how often you practice, I would probably discharge the round that is chambered if it has been in there for a while.
