    Hi Folks,

    I have heard good things about the Federal Hydra Shok and Winchester Silver Tips. Just wondering if anyone has any experience feeding them through a Glock 36.

    I welcome any suggestions and opinions.

    I'd personally recommend something more modern in the .45 ACP, such as Federal's own HST or Winchester's own Ranger-T, both specifically engineered to open reliably at the lower velocities generated by short barrels.

    As to collective experience with various loads out of the G36, you might want to try posting the same question at Glock Talk's Caliber Corner.

    best,
    Mas
