    I had 1 Magpul 308 mag that had a split feed lip but Magpul made it good - CS guy said it happens infrequently.

    I do if I keep them loaded for extended periods of time, keeps pressure off of the feed lips, pushes top round down 1/8” or so and keeps stress off of the feedlips which is about the only week spot that I have found on them... I personally haven’t had any crack but there’s a lot of videos of them cracking from having been loaded for a few years or so
