Not trying to be snarky but you don't consider 8 stoppages in 100 Winchester rounds excessive?

I do consider it excessive. I figured any stoppages would be from the reloads. The stoppages came towards the end of the shooting session and the gun was very dirty and getting dry as well. This was the first time out and though I have built excess of 15 ARs, this was my first 9mm build. It will get shot next weeked too so I'll post another range report.

Sounds good, thanks for the follow up. Were they a FTE or FTF? Please post up some follow up if you get different results down the road!

Do you think that was due to the firing pin getting gummed up preventing full extension? Not all manufacturers use the same primers and seating depth. Others use harder primers etc. I'm wondering if you could do something fairly easy enough to increase the strength of the strike of the firing pin? That might help to solve a couple of issues. I'm sure you already know this and have thought about it. I'm just thinking out loud as I have a friend who built an AR and was having some issues as well.

Sorry, I mean they were all failure to feed. So far I am happy with the primer strikes.

Some crappy photos of the internals of my wife's 9mm. I think everything looks pretty good. Nothing seems abnormal.

Do yourself a favor and replace all of your mag followers and springs with these. My 9MM also had some failure to feed issues that were somewhat prevalent, and these fixed the issue 100%. I haven't had a feed-related issue ever since.

Make sure your timing right. You should be ejecting at 3 o'clock. If not your timing is off and could cause feeding issues.

I also read in Speer's reloading book Volume 14 (I believe) that 147gr bullets can pose a risk in barrels over 10" due to not moving as fast as lighter bullets; adding potential for a stuck bullet. While I have shot factory 147gr 9mm through my PSA carbine, I've avoided it since learning that.
Stick with middle of the road powder charges when loading 147 grain projectiles for a 9mm carbine. I haven't had any issues with mine loading 90 grain up to 147 grain weights. I never load +P pressure loads but can see the dangers there as mentioned earlier.

If it is want and not need then get the 9mm.
At the moment since I can reload I am going 300 black out. Loads range from about like at .45 pistol to almost AK ballistics. It was designed for the AR.
I will play around about with pistol braces on my glocks set up with RMRs optics for 9mm for now. Maybe later a 9mm Ar just because I can.

Iím putting a 9 mm together. Tennessee Arms poly lower for Glock mags, a cheap 4Ē barrel on a cheap upper with a cheap handguard and bolt, and Kak 6 position brace and buffer tubes. About $300 all in once itís finished.

Just waiting for the lower to come in at the FFL.
