AR_15, mil.spec.mag. Can you leave/store 20 rounds in a 30 round mag for extended periods of time without damage to the spring? How long?

Kinda off topic, but does anyone have problems with the 30 round GI mags jamming if loaded with 30 rounds? My nephew, a Marine who has done 3 tours in Iraq said they only put 27 rounds in theirs because they jam if you put in more than that.
nothing said:
I've seen guys who only load 29 rounds because it's easier to seat the magazine on a closed bolt, but I've never had a mag fail because it had 30 rounds in it. But I'm sure a big burly Marine wouldn't let a magazine kick his ass when a little Army Infantryman like me could slam one home. :evil: hmmm now I bet the tread will really be hijacked.
He's not a big burly Marine, he's a short stocky one. Kinda like his great uncle the 5'2" Marine drill instructor at Parris Island during WWII. :lol4:
