I know absolutely NOTHING about reloading for a G30 or G36.

Simple always implies LRN or FMJ. I have never tried TC in .45 ACP but I'm about to try it for .40 S&W. I haven't spent much time loading JHP for .45 ACP either. I buy what little I need of JHP.

Given that loading for the G30 is probably more selective than the G21, it would be a good idea to start there. If it works in a G30, it will very likely work in a G21.

FWIW, I have also had good results from the Bear Creek 200 gr LSWC.

I use both Bear Creek and S&S Casting 230 gr LRN in all of my guns but, again, I know NOTHING about how they would work in a G30.

I would probably start by loading FMJ as that is one load that almost has to work. If I had a factory round that I knew functioned well, I would match the OAL and work the powder charge as necessary.
