Feeding flat points in MP5 clone pistols

I have a PTR 9CT (It's a SBR but it started life as a pistol)

It shoots great. Very fun, accurate, low recoil.

But the thing is I love to shoot suppressed and most 147 grain sub sonic ammo has a flat nose bullet profile.

When shooting these types of bullets I get a failure to feed on the last round 95% of the time. Some ammo like the Winchester Super Suppressed will fail to feed multiple times in a mag where others like Speer Lawman will run right up to that last round.

The only solution I have found is to load one regular velocity 124 grain ball nose bullet then fill the mag with my subsonics.

Has anyone else with a MP5 clone had this issue? What did you do to solve it?
