I've always read about 'cycles' causing spring fatigue and not continued compression.
BUT,,,I know every single loaded M1 carbine and M14 mag I inherited from my uncle, had ruined shot springs.
How long he had them loaded and how much use they had prior, I have no clue, but some looked damn near NOS otherwise.
