Funny how terms get into the shooting sports. Just in my 65 years it has changed a lot. I remember how mad our Marine Gunny got when someone said "rack the slide". Lololol

Back in the day some of the Butler Creek mags, 25 rounders would not feed well. I still have a couple, Ruger put metal lips on theirs and used it as a marketing tool. I think the problems were mostly shooting them in cold weather. There are actually guidelines on taking them apart and cleaning and adjusting the tension on them. On the other hand, I have actually shot ARs when it was so cold the bolt often would not cycle simply due to a little carbon and the below freezing temp. I guess you can spray that RV anti freeze on them, lol.

I have never heard it phrased as tuning before, but I've had to adjust magazines for a Mark I, I've actually had to adjust more magazines for that pistol than I haven't. I've had to adjust magazines for a 1911, and for an AR15. But for a factory 10 round 10/22 magazine I've never seen one that failed to work regardless of age of round count. In my experience the only two types of factory 10/22 mags I've seen were either good to go or very obviously broken.

As OldGringo said the older butler creeks had some issues. They had plastic feed lips in them and I believe called them hot lips if I remember correctly. I've seen some of those that work great and some that didn't, the ones I saw tended to give feeding issues on the last few rounds. Back in the day when there wasn't many options on high capacity magazines, you just had to deal with what you could get. I still see Butler Creek mags for sale, but have no experience with their modern magazines. In my opinion the 10 round ruger magazine is one of them better magazine designs. If its not cracked open or rattling like a baby toy, it shouldn't give you any issues.

I have no idea what "mag-tuning" is supposed to mean, but I've been shooting 10/22 rifles for 40+ years, and have never had a problem. Ruger makes some "rubber jackets" for the mags in case you want to carry some around in your pocket (keeps the dust & lint out) Just don't try to shoot CCI Stingers.
