Will it ruin the springs? Does it affect the spring tension if you don't rotate the ammo earlier than 1-2 month cycles?
Something to consider would be the quality of the magazine. If it's a quality magazine you should have no problems leaving it loaded. I would hesitate to leave military surplus magazines loaded for extended periods. That lowest bidder thing concerns me.
