No that's not illegal.
It's a grey area though.. it depends on whether a judge decides it's reasonable to have the magazines loaded in the gun case. The law doesn't define this, I don't know of any case history giving a precedent, so no one on here can say it's legal or illegal, we can only give an opinion.
My opinion is that it's reasonable to have loaded mags with the gun (but not in the gun)
