Default any of you had this problem

I had a pretty good deal on Win 9mm fmj 115gr ammunition but I went to the range yesterday and for the first time I had a jam every 10-15 rounds shot, I have a CZ SP 01 Shadow and never had any problem whatsoever before but it's the first time that I shot 115gr, could it be the weight of the bullet causing it???

I shoot any ammo from 95 gr to 147 gr through my 9mm w/o problems. Take a hard look at your grip. The most common problem with auto pistols is with limp wristing. Have someone else shoot it and see if they hav ethe same problem.

Have you inspected the internals closely?

1. Ejector

2. Extractor

3. Recoil Spring(s)

Are they reloads?

Have you cleaned the chamber? NOT the barrel, the chamber? It takes a different size and much stiffer brush.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Could be that you were shooting a heavier bullet before. Perhaps your recoil spring is a little too strong for these loads.

If it functions without fail, with a heavier 124 gr or 147gr load, you should look into a reduced power spring, WOLFF makes them for most guns.
Wolff Gunsprings Manufactures springs for modern and vintage firearms, guns, hammer, pistols, handguns, revolvers, rifles, shotguns, semiautomatic, accessories, weapons, law enforcement, hunting, shooting, recoil, colt, mainsprings, magazines, IPSC

Or try a load with a heavier charge, +p, or some WCC NATO rounds.
