    Anyone put hollow points or self defense rounds through their XDS yet? Any feeding issues?

    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.

    What reports of feeding problems with SD ammunition? I have not seen any.

    Mine has eaten everything I've fed it without a hitch. Everything from JHP defense loads (Hydrashoks) to LRN reloads...I couldn't be happier!

    I just picked up my XDs yesterday. Haven't been to the range but have had several feed malfunctions when manually cycling the slide. I am using Ranger 230 Gr. T-series. To add to the problem, after dropping the mag and racking the slide, a round was in the chamber and the loaded chamber indicator was not raised from the barrel! The round may not have been properly seated but it is troubling that this could happen. I have been well trained to deal with malfunctions and this isn't my first time across the dance floor with the XD series. I'm hoping that I can get this pistol replaced. I will never feel safe with it.

    Are you absolutely sure of your observation about the loaded chamber indicator?? That makes zero sense from a design perspective.

    Also, "dropping the mag and racking the slide" in that sequence should not have left a round in the chamber. That action would have expelled the round. Careful, with only one post to your name on this forum, you could be considered a troll, and not a very good one.
