    I just had a question, I accidentally bought some + P hollow point ammo and my store has a no return policy. Can the xd45 safely shoot the +P and will it cause any wear and tear to my gun? Thanks in advance guys.

    No problem, fire away. Many guys use +P ammo, I use Win Ranger +P as my carry ammo.

    It will seriously wear the barrel. I do not recommend. I will buy for 1/2 price and shoot it for you.

    My XD 45 has fired quite a few 230 grain XTP's at well over 1,000 fps...

    So, NO...factory +P ammo will not hurt your XD.

    With factory +P you are good to go. It is the hand loaded +P from Bubba at the gun show I would be worried about.

    +1 good to go. You dont want to shoot them all the time, because they are harder on the springs and such. That being said, I also carry the hornady xtp +p for personal defense.

    +1, I wouldnt shoot someone elses reloads anyway, but I really wouldnt want to shoot someone else's +p reloads.

    To clarify my previous post...

    I load mine to 45 Super specs...230 XTP's @ 1,100 fps for the really hot ones. However, I like them better at 1,000 fps...more accurate, less recoil.

    How are you getting away with that power level in a 45ACP ?
    What kind of cases are you using ?
    Any high pressure signs ??
    If not I'm thinking that would make a great short range deer load !!!

    I havent shot it in yet, in fear of it damaging my XD, but now I will take about a mag of it to the range and do some comparasion between the regular jhp, and the jhp +p and see if there is any noticeable differences.

    My answers in red...

    BE CAREFUL...EVERYTHING has to be perfect (OAL, powder charge,)...and only use the brass 1 time at 45 Super levels....after it has been fired one time it is only good for standard pressure 45acp loads.

    I have fired lots of Double Tap 230gr loads, and they are above 1000fps. No issues...

    I've been shooting the 165gr Corbons at well over 1000fps ( I thinkthey are either 1350 or 1150..can't remember off the top of my head) with absolutely 0 problems...great penetration and in California, heavy clothing isn't really a problem but in testing them in colorado, they shot through a parka, 4 layers of denim and a t shirt into Gelatin and still did 9.25" of Penetration and HUGE crush cavity and great stretch cavity. Perfect Expansion. Per specs they hit harder than the 185's and 230's...Nver had a single issue with overpressure signs or any other non-normal wear in my XD. Have about 5000 through it now.
