I just bought 7, 50 round boxes of Remington UMC 147gr fmj 9mm lugers at my local Farm and Fleet because they were on sale for a price I couldn't pass up. Now, I have never bought or shot 9mm in the 147gr bullet so I was a little concerned when I opened up one of the boxes and the bullets have a flat nose much like the 40 S&W rounds.
After some thinking I have come to the conclusion that for a 9mm to be able to pack 147gr bullets they have to give the bullet a flat nose as opposed to the round nose due to overall length, correct? Does a flat nose bullet have any pros or cons as compared to a round nose like the 115gr WWB I have been shooting? One more question, should I be concerened about FTF with the flat nose or will it feed just like my 127gr Winchester Ranger JHP's?
Looking forward to hearing some facts and opinions on the matter,
BTW, Will be shooting them through a 75B fullsize that is well broken in (2,500+ rounds).
