Howdy there. I'm another 9mm Cx4 carbine shooter.

Is it the case that for shooting at 100 yards or so a 147grain bullet might be better than a lighter bullet? Does anyone know whether wind effects lighter weight 9mm bullets more?

I'm reading this thread with considerable interest. In my experience all bullet types have worked well *if* factory magazines are used. Once I deliberately tried to make the carbine jam and found that *if not* a factory mag, then blunter bullet shapes and larger diameter cavity hollow points can fail to feed. Ball rounds and more of an ogive shape work really well.

I might repeat that the literature on Winchester 127grain JHP +P+ LEO round specifically rules out using it in longarms.

--d.
