Magazine capacity question

1285 11
I recently picked up a nice P229 40 in satin nickel. The pistol came with four Sig Sauer stamped magazines. The magazines have witness holes going up to 13 however I can only get 10 rounds in. Am I doing something wrong?

Forgot to mention with 10 rounds in the magazine I can see a shell through the 13th witness hole.
Well that makes things a bit interesting. Are you sure you are loading 40 and not 45? lol sorry to be that guy

13 rounders are 9 MM, not .40/357.
12 rounds are .40/357.

Your magazines are for a 229 9MM.

Possibly a 228.

Look on the back of the magazine and see if the seam is overlapped in a zipper back.
Also, if the holes are on the back, then it is probably for the older 228/229 in 9MM
If they are on the side, they are .40/357.

Want to trade?
