My understanding is the original development of the 9x39 was started after issues with subsonic 7.62x39 were found in extreme cold.

I have read this is an issue with the 300BLK subsonics in extreme cold as well.

I do not know for what reason anyone would be out side shooting in extreme cold, but it takes all kinds I suppose.
