Browning BDA mag question

Sorry if I am in the wrong place, but I have a question about another Browning, the BDA .380. The mag is supposed to hold ten rounds and I am absolutely unable to load more than nine. I'm talking grit teeth, sweaty brow and muscles trembling. I'm a big guy, too. ops: Has anybody had experience with this great little CCW pistol. I like everything about it. Thanks. Larry

Actually, IIRC the 380 BDA (a modified Beretta 84) was designed to hold 12 rounds. It's possible that some of the later models may have had mags that were modified to hold only 10 rounds. IIWY, I'd look around for some Beretta 84 mags. They should be available.

If that's not possible, then load the mag and let it sit for a week or two. As the spring wears in you should be able to get the 10th round in.
