    Yep. Might try a 15# spring, or bumping up the charge a tad. Malfs that suddenly appear out of the blue with no observable defects or change in anything are always baffling, no pun intended. :)

    winchester silver box 147gr same ammo I always use and have never had any problems with it in the past.
    I guess I am going to have to but am not sure why it didn't cause a problem in the past.

    Just ordered a new 15lb spring, stainless guide rod, and 3.5lb connector. We'll see.

    Could have gotten a bad batch of ammo.

    I know on my G19 with handloads, I have to load towards the max to reliably function. So add a suppressor, and inherent variance batch to batch (maybe not even enough to be "bad" ammo) could be enough to push you from reliable to jam-o-matic.

    That silver box Winchester is plenty stiff enough to work the can. I'm with DGon possibly having a bad batch. Might try another batch or type.

    Yeah factory 147s are usually all there.

    Just an observation. Only factory 147s I've used are SD loads, so they run hot anyways. I've never used the ammo listed.

    I have some and it's a fair approximation of the defense stuff. handloads and suppressor stuff like Fiocchi 158gr and Special K are noticeably softer.

    This is driving me crazy, I'm Stumped. I really don't want to have to change out parts since it was running fine before.

    Think the 15lb spring will be okay to run all the time? I don't want to have to change parts out to run my can. arghhhhh
