I have an autoloader (pistol) that has been kept with the magazine full for over a decade now. Once a year I take it out and shoot all of the cartridges out of it, whether it needs it or not. Then I clean it, reload it - and back it goes into its hidey-hole for another year.
That gun has never once done anything but act just as it is supposed to. After ten years and ten re-loadings, the magazine is just as big a pain in the butt to fill up as it always has been. If the spring has gotten any weaker, you couldn't prove it by me.
