I wasn't even aware of that issue until I'd read about it somewhere else, before. It makes reloading a real challenge as you mentioned.
It’s been mentioned this is a great round for a sub gun. I personally don’t believe subguns have a place in weaponry except for perhaps a very small subsection. Moder SBR’s would serve the same purpose, with longer range capability to boot.
IIRC the SS109 has a steel core - meant to penetrate Soviet (Russian) body armor. It's why so many ranges ban its use.
