I use the Maglula UpLULA for both my Shield and 9mm Pro Series clipazines....... The Shield mag springs have settled a bit and I can load them much easier by hand compared to when new. So sometimes for the Shield mags I go without the device.
However, the first bullet going into the 9mm mag is a right turd it is so hard. I have many pistols and rifles and none are like this. All 4 of my 9mm Pro Series magazines are the same...1st round a real beeyotch to push in. So I use the Maglula. Once the first 1 or 2 are in the magazine, I could load the rest by hand..... but once I'm going with the device I just keep going until it's.....erm, I was going to say full, but.....well, read on.
The major weirdness is that using the Maglula you CANNOT load the 10th round. You just cannot depress the 9th bullet into the mag body enough to allow loading the 10th round......with the device.
So I can only load 9 with it, then I have to load the 10th without it. Strange. (The 9mm Pro Series uses 10 round mags because of where I live.)
So I don't know if this is because the magazines have been limited to 10rds? That would be my guess though because I have never heard of such a thing. I don't know if these are standard mags with a limiter installed, or if they are manufactured to be standalone California Compliant 10 round versions.
How is loading the last round with the device for the rest of you folks who don't live in 10 round limit states?

I've been loading all of my various "free state" M&P mags, including 17 rounders, with an UPLULA mag loader without issue for many years.

I solved all my last round issues... i removed (filed & sanded) a tiny bit of material off from the bottom of the follower so that it would seat firther down inside the mag making it ALOT easier to load the last round. Some choose to cut the mag spring, not a good idea in my opinion. But to each their own. And as for the maglula, its the best thing since sliced bread.

Clips, magazines. OK that was dealt with.
I was hoping that I could get in here before someone triggered my pet peeve, but I failed to do that. Watching that video I linked to reminded me...
The Uplula loads cartridges or rounds into the mag'. A loading press loads bullets into the cartridge case. That along with a primer and powder comprise a cartridge or round (ammo). The bullet is only the projectile.
Yeah, I know hellywood is responsible for people calling cartridges bullets, but we're supposed to know better. Same as we don't hold our guns gangsta style. OK, I had a buddy who pulled that gangsta handgun hold in my presence while at the range and I pulled him up short. It began with "What the eff are you doing!!???". Let the twisted hellywood types display their ignorance.
