Just a few thoughts. There are a lot of things that can be the cause of feeding problems, and they don't ALL start with the magazine. It could be barrel ramp down, and that could be caused by the barrel bed, the link, the slide stop pin. I could be caused by the angle of the ramp into the chamber. It could be caused by the recoil spring itself. A surprising thing is that it could be caused by a stutter in slide recoil because the disconnector is too high. It could be caused by excessive spring tension in the magazine spring. It could be caused by feed lips that are too tight. It could be caused by follower angle. It could be caused by where the mag locks and how much play there is in the magazine. And this is just a short list. Expecting to just buy a new magazine and solve the problem without any other diagnostic work is just throwing good money after bad.
