    147 gr subsonic without a suppressor?

    Will a Mac 11 with max31 cycle this ammo
    Without a suppressor. Local gun shop has some at a decent price, but before I drop the coin, thought Id ask some who have had experience with it? Thanks in Advance...

    Should cycle fine. All 147gr 9mm will be subsonic.

    Are you talking about a MAC 11 which is a .380 gun or a SWD m11/9 which is 9mm?

    The shape of the bullet is often the biggest issue with 147s. There is not much widely available round nose 147gr 9mm to my knowledge, but you do see semi flat points made by CCI in 147. These will cycle in a Lage 31a mk2, but not in uppers that use the stock feed ramp like a MAX-11a1, because the 31 has an improved feed ramp. This is my personal experience from a SWD M11A1, but should apply to a SWD m11/9 which I assume you are referring to.

    As he said above, using a Lage Max31 upper.

    I roll my own from Berry's bulltes. 147g round nose is my personal favorite 9mm ammo.

    I had some issues with flat nosed/truncated cone AE ammo causing hiccoughs, whereas round nosed IMI and PPU runs fine. As always, YMMV.

    Main thing - avoid flat nose and any 9mm ammo with two-step cases...
