Anyone put hollow points or self defense rounds through their XDS yet? Any feeding issues?
I have put about 20-30 through with no issues.
50 rds of 230 gr. hydra shock thru mine as of now with no problems
No issues with Winchester Ranger T-Series.
Yes. I purchased 2 of the 7rd. mags. Using Hornady Critical Defense ammo. It won't rack another rd. through. Not fireing, just racking the slide by hand. I just tried a 5 rd. mag with Remingtom UMC Metal case ammo. Does the same thing. Not sure what's going on. Guess I'll go back to carrying my Glock till I can get back to the range.
Yes I have trouble with Remington 230 gr GS.
Switched to Federal 230gr HST and have not had a single problem
I did not have issues with Win Ranger 230 gr HP. The polished feed ramp should help. I even rode the slide on my video trying to get it to jam. The easiest and cheapest thing is to just try a different ammo.
Yes, but only to a very limited degree. The gun should work with 95% of the ammo out there or you end up in a situation like the Kimber Solo, a gun so terrible that there is a short list of ammo that does work in it.
Mine did not like Hornady TAP. Seems to digest Critical Defense just fine.
Have run about 100 rounds of 230 XTP both factory and handloaded. Had to seat my handloads deeper than other guns (1911's and XD 5"), but have had zero feeding issues.
100 rounds put through FMJ on the day I got her.
Heard about the problem some are having with self defense rounds and went to the range and put 100 rounds of Hornady FTX 185 through her, with no issues.
I've got 300 rounds of Hornady 185gr XTP, and 300 rounds of cheap Tula Ammo 230gr FMJ, no issues so far.
I'll be watching this one.
I have had 3 instances of Winchester PDX1 230 grain JHPs failing to feed when racking the slide. If I insert the mag and hit the slide release, I have no problem. I have had zero problems when shooting, only when racking the slide after inserting a mag on a closed slide.
PDX1 runs good in mine.
What reports of feeding problems with SD ammunition? I have not seen any.
