Please in future posts use better grammar and all the other stuff you learned in school.

And first try Silicon Oil, drip a few drops down the feed tube (the tube that the BBs come in) then try shooting it. It could be that the mags are low quality and might not work out of box. VA mags might be rebranded ACM (All China Made) mags. ACM, Green Label and other cheap magazines (that often come in bulk backs for pretty cheap) often have feed issues.

EDIT: What BBs are you using? Low Quality BBs are exactly that Low Quality. For best results use BB Bastard BBs. other ones like those crappy .12s from crappy tire are crap. Velocity Arms BBs are also rice bagged meaning that they often have poor tolerances and/or shape. Stick with King Arms,Green Devil , Madbull Precision, Guarder, Airsoft Elite, Excel, and above all else BB Bastards.

I've read a little on my question but I just want another opinion.

Is it normal that not all BBs load? For my high caps(300 rounds) the last 18 shots don't fire and when I pull out the mag roughly 5 or 6 BBs fall out. The same happens with my mid caps.

I've read this happening regardless of the mag quality, and some people say don't load a 130rnd mag(for example) all the way. Instead load maybe 120 or so.

Is this just something I'm going to have to accept or is there a way around this?

Edit: BBS - King Arms
Mags: KWA 300 Rnd High Cap
MAG 130 rnd
Rifle: KWA - M4A1

Inside these mags is a spring, and springs relax over time, so yes, it is normal to have a cupple dozen bbs that dont feed at the end of the mag, I recomend to try a Magpul Pmag mid cap, they are much better then any mag i have looked at. and it seems there is a little plasic nub that come a little of the way out of the bb tube, meaning is forcing extra bbs up so that u get maximum bbs per mag.

Dodgetheram (awesome name BTW) I agree, they are amazing mags just make sure you use the REAL PTS ones not the green label.

Ah thanks, man. Appreciate the info. Makes sense. The only reason I stayed away from PMAGs(those are the ones with the bullets showing, right?) is because I saw a youtube video where a guy was pulling and pulling on his mag from his vest and it wouldn't come out, I suspect because of the magazine's design. Now, that probably wouldn't matter given my particular vest, but it stuck in my head and I went with something a little more basic.

Lol he probs left the dust cap on or somthing, trust me when I say, PMAGS are worth the extra cupple bucks, and in my opinion they will not ware down the metal parts that they contact on your lower reciver, ie mag well, mag relese. (polymer is softer then most metals)

Yea there either the same or similar to ones I got at Crappy Tire back in the clearsoft days. Better BBs should help. Try one of the brands I listed earlier.

I had the same problem with bbq's binding up in my mags. Plays and king arms. Try loading 1 mag with hi end bb's and the other with cheap bb's. Your answer should be clear. The only time I have seen any success feeding cheap bb's was in hi-caps
