My question is what JHP, if any, did your XD45 have trouble with? I don't want to experiment with ammo that has a record of FTF's or FTE's.

Thanks in advance.

I had feeding issues with my XD9SC using Federal HST's. I'm sure my gun was more of an isolated case since I know of other people with XD's that have no issues with them. The large cavity in the hollow point seemed to hang up on the feed ramp. I don't think you can go wrong with Speer Gold Dots.

Ive had issues with Winchester SXZ HPs that they sell at Bass Pro, not that I shop there now because Id rather buy from a real gunstore who needs to make money, but doesent mark up the product at full retail price. I think I had 2 FTF. I have also had issues with FMJs with them nose diving into the mag. I am not bothered by this since I can clear the pistol in a matter of seconds. I think its a mag issue. Ive had my XD for 4 years now and have only used one mag.

I haven't tried every JHP, but my TAC feeds anything but LSWC. For SD/HD ammo, YOU MUST run the ammo in your gun. Thre is no substitute for just loading up & hoping it doesn't fail, regradless of what works in my gun. There are a couple guys that can get 200grLSWC to run in their guns, but not me, not 100% reliable. So always trust but verify.

Like others have already said, I haven't tried all brands of JHP, but so far my XD45 has had no problems with anything.

If you search enough, you're going to find guys that have had issues with probably every single self defense load out there in their XD45s. I know I've seen problems with Gold Dots, HST, and Ranger-T...and that's just off the top of my head.

As Fred says, you gotta find out for yourself; just because someone else had issues with a given load doesn't mean you will...and vice versa.
