    I'm a noob, but I asked the same question and was told at the shop where I purchased my XD (M) 40, they recommended for practice using Winchester 40 S&W, 165GR. Full Metal Jacketed. The box says for target & range, but like I said I'm a newbie.

    I'd say just go with the Winchester White Box .40. It's $30 per 100 for .45, and I can only imagine .40 would be cheaper. Just my .02.

    I just picked up .40 Blazer Brass 180gr FMJ at my local Wal Mart (Spokane, WA) for around (edit) $12.50/50 (just checked my receipt)

    At the same time I say that, they also told me there's been a run on the ammo, and a LOT of warehouses are going dry in .40SW and 9mm Luger ammo.

    Here are a few other places online I've poked into...

    AMMOMAN.COM d/b/a Discount Distributors
    Natchez Shooters Supplies
    Discount Hunting Gear, Discount Hunting Boots, Discount Shoes, Discount Ammunition, Discount Ammo, Discount Boots, Military Surplus, Outdoor Gear At the Sportsman's Guide
    www.ourdoormarksman.com
    Ammo, Ammunition, Rifle Ammunition, 9mm Ammo, Military Surplus
    MidwayUSA — Shooting Supplies, Reloading, Gunsmithing, Hunting, Ammunition, Gun Parts & Rifle Scopes

    Hope that helps!

    Mine likes the 180gr best and I have found Magtech 180gr flat point to be very accuraate and less expensive than most.

    Georgia Arms (0.263/round) or BVAC (0.25/round) will run when purchased by the 1000. That includes tax, title, license, so to speak. The cheapest factory ammo I can find in stock is the Blazer aluminum at Natchez Shooters Supply for 0.282 cents a round shipped to my homestead out in the swampy area. I have been looking at the reviews and BVAC reviews seem to be OK as well as Georgia Arms. One guy stated his XD 40 eats BVAC ammo just fine.

    Blazer brass is good for price and reliable accuracy. Very accurate shooting touching shots.

    I also like Blazer Brass from my limited range experience. For the last three weeks I have had 10 boxes of 40-cal, 180gr, FMJ,Brazer Brass on order from Wal-Mart. So far Wally World cannot determine when and how much so I'm chasing down a more sure supply of ammo.
