I'm 6'3" 240lbs and have pretty big hands and forearms. I can reliably get a Glock 20 to malfunction with a WHO grip using heavy, 200 grain hardcast loads.

A gun and load combination that will only run reliably with a perfect grip isn't really reliable.

The worst combination seems to be a wide meplat hardcast bullet that weighs 200 grains going about 1200 fps. Dropping the velocity seems to help quite a bit. If the bullet won't get the job done at 1050, it probably won't at 1200 either, especially if it is hung up on the feedramp.

What on God's green acre is a "WHO" grip?

Yup. Sorry for the unclear writing.
