I have feed around 1000 rounds down my G36 to date, most of them reloads, and I must say it's the best carry, trouble free, consistent gun I have even owned. The size is perfect for carry, no hammer/safety gouging into your side. It shoots more accurately than my Colt defender. My reloads are 185 grain XTP Hornady's w/6.2 grains of Bullseye powder at 1.240 overall length, shooting at around 1000 fps. Never a miss fire, FTE, or "limp wrist" issue even holding it loosely to prove that point. I am impressed, I may buy another.
