Default P365 magazine issues

I have NEVER had such a time loadinmg magazines as these I thought I was gonna break my thumb pressing on the last two cartridges and the 12 rounder was even worse!!! Is this sometning that is common with these magazines due to their build??? I was gonna go shooting today but now I think I'm just gonna let these loaded magazines sit for a while.
I mean JEEZE I broke a sweat loading these buggers!!

Yes Gary, the last couple rounds are a bear, get an UpLULA. It will get easier over time in my experience, but I still use the UpLULA.

Listen to Mike, I did.

I've had other loaders in the past and I bought the UpLula on Mike's suggestion and its easy to use and the fastest loader I've ever used.

Yes those last two rounds are tough...initially...which is why the MagLula is great. But after reloading them several times, they seem to break-in a little more.

Cajun,

I can't speak to the Sig P365 magazines, but I have a number of NJ neutered G17 magazines that are near impossible to get the tenth round in without the help of a maglula loading device!

Look at the design of the 365 mag, stuffing 10# in a 5# can...
UpLULA loaders are the schizzle for any hard to load mags

What I do to "break in" new mags is to leave them fully loaded for a couple of weeks. I've found that doing that makes them easier to load afterwards.

And yes, the UpLula is worth the investment. I have two of them, one to keep handy and another I keep in my range bag.

I have an Uplula, but my problem with 365 mag's is, I can't find another one to buy! Looked several places, and none in stock.

I was on the "call me when they come in" list at Buds on the 12 rounder. It was around $53 shipped but hell, I wanted a 12 rounder

Most any Sig mag is "tight" to begin with. They use GOOD springs
Heck my p220 45 8 round mags are still hard to load the last round.
CZ Scorpion 20 round is impossible to load without a mag loader.

As others said, you need a loader, I have an uplula. Agree on the first time I loaded by hand I thought that I needed to go back to the gym.

I grew tired of compressing the equivalent of a Kenworth truck suspension.

Saw the UpLULA and now goes to every range session with me.

I take comfort in knowing I have the best sub compact 9mm available.

Chuck Norris threatens the ammo, and they load themselves into the magazines.

Any double stack, subcompact centerfire pistol magazine will be difficult to extremely difficult to load fully. So it is not an issue, more like a feature.

The loader device mentioned above and leaving the magazines fully loaded do help.

The first few times I loaded my P365 Mag's I broke out in a sweat! LOL!! Seriously, first off they so loosen up a little after shooting and loading them a dozen times or so. Secondly, if you own a P365 GET the Uplula loader!

HINT: When using the Uplula, load the first round by hand. This will prolong the plastic nylon Magazine Follower by not letting the metal prong of the Uplula dig into it. It works!

Went to Lafayette Shooters this past Sunday to get an Uplula-something to do on a Sunday afternoon. Was absolutely amazed at the lack of ammo, unless of course you wanted .17 HMR or .22 mag shotshells. Had plenty of shotgun shells though-at the usual Lafayette Shooters prices
BOught some cleaning stuff to restock the box and then had a tough decision to make regarding the Uplula. Do I go with black to tactical olive drab??????
I looked left, looked right said to myself screw it, you only live once and went with the tactical olive drab
I tell ya, Uplula is proud of their loader-they ain't cheap

You can sometimes find them on sale in less popular colors - mine is medium red. I think my elementary school art teacher would call it "burnt sienna"

But I tell ya,it is worth the money!! I was told on the internet that one should hand load the first round so as not to damage or wear the magazine or tool unnecessarily and while loading the 12 round magazine I forgot and almost got #13 in before remembering i had hand loaded the first cartridge

I think I had to pay $58 for my 12 round mag but I didn't want to wait. The good news is I sold my other 10 round magazine which I will probably never use, for 30 bucks right away so got most of my money back. I probably should have asked more since 4 or 5 people contacted me wanting to buy it the first day I listed it on a local shooting forum.

I bought a S&W M&P 2.0 45 and a Sig P365 on the same day.

Both were painful getting the last 2 rounds in. The Uplula is a life saver for new mags. I scored a TactiCOOL black one thou.

I do load the first round by hand.

The one they make for the CZ Scorpion is amazingly CooL! It clamps on the mag and has a lever on it. Push it forward and load a round, pull it back and load a round. I can load 35 rounds as fast as 10 in the 365.
