Issue with 4.5 XDM 9mm in match shoot today

I shot my new XDM today in Limited class, USPSA match. I am shooting 9mm, UMC factory loads and some reloads. During the match, the gun twice malfunctioned on me. When I running and shooting, a spent shell exited the barrel but then stopped, apparently causing the slide to stop. To resolve the issue, I had to pull the stop back to the slide lock, eject the magazine and push the shell down and out of the gun, re-install a new magazine, slide rack a new round in a continue to shoot. Needless to say, this caused me major seconds during the match. Anyone have an idea as to what is going on. I put 150 rounds through the gun the day before the match and cleaned it after the practice shoot. I would welcome any suggestions.

My first thought is your shooting UMCs which are notorious for crappy reloads which is what they are. Also check your reloads as well. Have you tried firing some well known brand ammo like win?

Did it jam with the reloads or factory ammo? I have the same gun and haven't had a problem. How many rounds have been fired total? Was it lubed? Were you limp wristing it?

Yeah, I would say bad ammo. My full size 9mm has not given me any issues. I don't shoot reloads.

issue with XDM

My gun was cleaned and lubed after I had taken it to the range for testing. I had no problems with the ammo during the practice. I had put a total of 150 rounds through the gun prior to the match. My reload is a 115 grain, FMJ, 4.2 grains of Clays with a 1.136" OAL. I have had no problems with my Beretta 92Fusing either the reload or UMC. I could agree that I weak wristed the gun because it was during two running stages where the jams occurred. I fired approx. 200-250 rounds during the match, so a total of 400 rounds have been fired through the gun.

issues with XDM

The gun is a newer 4.5 model. I have a PRP trigger kit, Canyon Creek extended magazine release, Springer stainless steel guide rod, Dawson adjustable front and rear sights on the gun. The ammo has not been chronographed, so I just bought a chronograph and waiting for it to arrive. I also just bought dies for my Dillon 550 so I will start reloading my own ammo.

Type 3 malfunction. Sometime crap just happens. Learn to clear the malfunction & move forward. UMC ammo does not have a geat track record for reliabilty.

That is my guess too, also, if I read correctly, its a very new pistol with few rounds through it, still breaking in!

Send it to me with 1K rounds and I will be glad to break it in for you!

I agree about the faulty grip. Running and gunnin' reveals every inconsistency and weak spot in your technique. The only malfs I have with my 525 are in matches where I'm doing something weird (weak hand point n shoots, etc).
