One potential problem that I can think of, but it is easy to check. Some magazines loaded to full capacity and inserted with the slide closed will not reliably feed the 1st round. Some will. It depends on the individual firearm and magazine.

If you are inserting a 12 round mag and loading the 1st round leaving 11 in the magazine and then later insert a fully loaded mag with 17 rounds it would be a good idea to verify at the range that the gun will function for the 1st round.

Some of my AR magazines won't work that way. One of the reasons many advise downloading by 1 or 2 rounds.
