I think it depends where you're injecting, for example when i inject top of the glutes or "fatpad" how ever you  wanna call it,  it can take volume much better than when injecting around naval or love handles.  I'm currently using Sustanon 0,25ml 2xweek along with 250iu hcg but i think it's not very wise to try  inject more than 0,5ml in same spot subQ.

I was doing .5ml subq in my belly fat and had nothing but post injection problems...nodules, itchy like hell, I only did that a few times, I couldn't stand it. I went to my thighs with the 1/2" 29g and all my "issues" went away.
HcG in the belly though, no problems, but that 250iu is half the TCyp I was using.

Is 1 ml too much to inject on Subq? whats the maximum ml limit for subq?

1ml of an oil-based product is probably too much and would likely irritate as well as form a lump that would be slow to dissipate. I tried this once in the abdomen with Sustanon 250 and immediately regretted it. I now inject only 0.15ml and find that more comfortable in the outer thigh.

Age 76 years. Started Viagra at 59 years, then Cialis. Developed serious eye problems in 2010 immediately after increasing dose. Ordered to never use PDE5i again.
5 years on TRT, starting  with Androgel, then compounded 2% propionate gel then 5% propionate gel, then Sustanon 250 IM 3-weekly, then Sustanon 250 subq. 0.1ml x 3pw. Recently changed the subq protocol to shallow IM in the quads.
Arimidex 0.5mg EoD. Stopped TRT in April 2015 but started again in November due to decline in libido. Still taking:
Prazosin 3x5mg ED
Nebivolol 5mg x2 ED
Gave up Tamsulosin as I didn't like retrograde ejaculation. No negative effects since stopping.

Someone on here said that .5 ml is the usual max for subQ I believe.  Ask your doc, of course, but it's not a high volume thing...

I'm injecting .35 ml, 2 times per week, sub-q.  I just started this about six weeks ago and it seems to suit me well.  I do sometimes get the itchy nodule but that seems to have more to do with how quickly I inject than anything else.  I'm rotating between belly fat and love handle areas.
Age 42
5'10" 195lbs
08/2016:  Total T - 700 ng/dL; E2 - 18.1 pg/mL
06/2016:  Total T - 905 ng/dL; E2 - 22.4 pg/mL (sensitive)
03/2016:  Total T - 1159 ng/dL; E2 - 38.3 pg/mL
12/2015:  Total T - 1351 ng/dL; E2 - 30.5 pg/mL
09/2015:  Total T - 792 ng/dL; E2 - 26.7 pg/mL
07/2015:  Total T - 438 ng/dL; E2 - 7.1 pg/mL
02/2015:  Total T - 758 ng/dL; E2 - 37.4 pg/mL
10/2014:  Total T - 810 ng/dL; E2 - 47.7 pg/mL

Current protocol (06/2016):

70 mg T Cyp. (IM) - 2x/week

I'm injecting .35 ml twice weekly . At first I never got a nodule or any reaction after about a month or so into my protocol I get the itchy nodule everytime I inject but only with the test cyp, no problems at all with the HCG. It's strange because I'm not doing anything different and I rotate sites everytime I inject.

Guys,

I get the same thing (sometimes) even with a smaller volume.  I'm guessing that that is more of a reaction to the preservative and/or oil.
