I would be more concerned with magazine (clip for you non-military types) memory. Currently I only have one mag for my DP51 and every night after I take it off, I remove 5-7 rounds out of the mag. This leaves me with enough ammo should I need it, and helps reduce the rate at which the magazine spring weakens.

Weakened, or substandard springs, will cause feeding problems, but is usually only a problem on duty weapons.

When I was in the Marines, we would only load 28, ( 29 if you were feeling sporty) rounds into our M-16 magazines, mostly though to prevent double feeds. Granted we had those wonderful Circle K mags, and as an Range NCO, I probably marked 4 out of 10 of those as bad.
