Does anyone have experience with firing any of the grain .40 S&W Federal Hydra Shock Ammo in an XD40?


Comments/experience/pros/cons?

I was given 4 boxes a while back function fine in my service but for SD there's newer, better stuff from Federal. HSTs are the newer product.

all of the above if possible. I've previously used Hydra Shocks in a Glock .40 cal..... was pleased, but just wanting to see what you guys thought since the XD world is new to me...

Thanks,
Josh

I've carried and shot Hydrashocks out of all my defense guns for a long time.
One reason is it used to be the best defense ammo,
another is it always functioned 100% in ALL of my guns, always.

I'm not in a financial position to test the new ammo in my carry and HD guns to make sure my guns will eat them 100% so I'm sticking with HydraShocks for now.

The new stuff is cheaper, they are probably keeping the Hydrashocks around for people like me who are slow to change.

The .40 Hydrashock is my HD round.

Here are some Hydrashock rounds I fired into gel:
