    As to the original question, I rotate the ones in the mag if I unchamber a round. It might take a year to get back to the original round and by then, it should have already been shot at the range. So 2 or 3 at max.
    Exactly. Since having had this "bullet set back" issue myself, I do the same thing. It was all part of the learning process.

    I've been loading 1 up this way for 8 years in my Glock and have never had an issue or any signs of excessive extractor wear.

    I Have had to replace the top round several times on my .45 and 9mm. As soon as that round looks "Damaged" in any way it is replaced.
    I only go to the ranger every 2 to 3 weeks but my rounds get ejected and re-chambered at least once per day.

You just have to understand what "gentle" means compared to "slam" and be wise enough to do a safety check. Like I said, no problem.

    Well that's nice. You clearly have nothing left to learn then.

    I will just say I have never seen a professional (military, LE, competition, instructor) use that method to load a semi-auto pistol, or recommend it to anyone else as a means to load their pistol. I think there's a reason for that.

    So I guess I need to open another thread; at WHAT POINT DOES ONE BECOME AN EXPERT ON FIREARMS? Have read lots over the few years here. Just not sure how accurate some posts are. YES, that also includes "Instructors".

    Yes it is nice.

If it doesn't work for you then I will have to say you have much to learn regardless of your reasoning.
