Default XD40 question

For those who have one do you find it hard to load the mag with the bullets? I just bought one and I know it's new and the spring is stiff but I can't fill it up. I can only get 8 in a 10 rd. mag. Any tips on making it easier? Thanks

Defaintly leave your mags loaded. Use the mag-thumb loader and sent the mag on a table or bench. With a lil time they will loosen up!!

"mag-thumb" that would be the speed loader that should have come with the gun. I have a 45 XD and love the mag-thumb loader.
