CZ 97 new style barrel?

I noticed that CajunGW has listed a 'new style CZ97b barrel'  I have not experienced any issues with the 'old style' barrel except when shooting 200g SWC/4g Bullseye.  The bullet tends to nose into the feed ramp and 'stick'.  I have tried many different seating depths, 4 brands of mags (factory works best)and the feed ramp is mirror polished.  It digests 100% with 200g FMJ RN but is scary more accurate with the SWC.  Any comments regarding if the new style barrel might address this problem?

My older 97B wouldn’t load HPs reliably only FMJs. The angle of the feed ramp would prevent loading as the nose would catch. The newer barrels have corrected the issue, but this has been quite a while ago.

Mine will function 100% with Hornady Critical Duty 135g FlexLock so I'm good in that regard.  I am shooting NRA Bullseye with the 97b as it is more accurate than 2 custom 1911 USPSA Limited pistols I have.  Go figure??  Too heavy to carry, I'll stick to my P7 for that.
