Mine shoot reloads well, hot loads light loads, it doesn't seem to matter...it eats them all. I shoot a lot of lead bullets that I cast through it as well...I am a recent 995 addict. I took mine to the indoor range yesterday. I put a Truglo red dot it from Dicks ($29 clearence). At 25 yards, 1 big ragged hole group after sighting in. Now i need to take it to an outdoor 50 yd range. The Hipoint carbines are a great value. Dont be surprised if it doesnt like reloads. Mine doesn't. Shoots winchester white box perfectly.
