When I loaded my last mag my follower would get stuck at the bottom and all my rounds would shake and I could pour the rounds out.

Disassembled, cleaned, inspected, lubed 3 times. No noticeable irregularities.

Same problem again each time.

Plastic followers.

Any ideas?
Are you lubing the inside of the mag?

Get a ruler or other long tool to push the follower up and down 20 to 40 times, disassemble and look to see if there is a wear point on the inside of the mag and also the follower.
