Last year I built an AR pistol in 40 S&W, why 40 you ask.... Logistics. I had some teething pains to make it reliable with all ammo. It fed FMJ and HST's great but did not like truncated cone HP's. I installed a feed ramp for Taccom3G and then built up the ramp with JB weld, basically making a ramped barrel. If I had a machine shop I would machine one from Stainless. It will now feed empty brass.

The 8.5" BBL gets the 155 grn HST up to 1360fps. From what I understand the 9mm is very similar, past 8.5" velocity gains are SLOW.
