    I recently purchased a G36 and had interesting trips to the range over the past two days:

    1. Handloads = no issues at all (200 rounds, 230 gr Hornady...ran like a champ)
    2. Remington 230 gr from Walmart = FTF about 25% of the time, regardless of magazine (200 rounds; looked like they were getting stuck on the feedramp)
    3. Testing with single hand shooting, either weak or strong = no problems at all regardless of handloads or Remington

    The FTF didn't appear to be related to limpwristing, and I made sure my thumbs weren't touching the slide lock when shooting two handed. Any ideas? Thanks for the help.

    If the bullet nose was stuck in the feed ramp it could be a problem with:
    Timing (need more mag spring)
    Limp wristing (try locking an elbow like you do single handed)
    Polish (the feed ramp.
