My wal-mart finally got some ammo in but it's only 115 gr and I usually buy 124 gr. Does the XD9 SC have any problem with 115 gr?

I know my PT-111 Pro is unreliable with 115gr I don't want to buy a few hundred rounds of 115gr and not be able to shoot it with my XD9 SC

115 gr is a very popular practice round for most. Winchester White Box (WWB) and CCI Blazer both come in 115gr and they should work fine in any XD.

Just needed to check. My Pt111 sometimes has issues with the 115 becaue for some odd reason Taurus made 124 the suggested round for it and while it's reliable with 124 it's harder to find.

I just wanted to make sure if I go buy 600 rounds of 115gr that I'm not going to be hating things later on due to FTE's or something. I figured SA would properly design their gun to work with popular loadings but wanted to check.

My XD9 service has digested about 1000 rounds of Mal Wart white box 115gr with not a single problem. I am planning on buying out the local supply again here sometime soon. :twisted:

Cool thanks.
I'm going to go buy out their supply in a little bit since for some reason they keep running out.
I've got 2 pistols that can take the 115gr and only one that needs the 124 so I guess the PT-111 just won't get used for a while :D

I'm new to the XD scene too, I have a Tactical 9, and I've shot about 400rds of various stuff though it. Seller and Bellot, CCI aluminum, WWB all in 115gr with no real problems. I did have one fail to fire with the S&B about 70-80 rds into it, but no problems since then.

Between my wife and I, we have three 9mm XD Sub Compacts. I've found that all three will work just fine with 115 grain ammunition, as long as it's full power. I reload all our practice ammunition and the SC requires loads that are right at the top of the scale to function reliably. They have stiff springs to compensate for the lack of slide weight, and it takes a good load to overcome those springs.

Between us, we've shot well over 1,000 rounds through each pistol, and it's all 115 grain reloads.

Hope this helps.

Well....

Some guy at Handguns Magazine ran about 20,000 rounds through one and it didn't even hiccup. I'd say you're in the clear on 115grainers in the XD-9.

Starting using Winchester 115 gr. through my XD Tactical 9. Worked flawlessly. Then I changed to 124 gr. and the groups tightened considerably. I am sticking with 124 gr. with my 5" barrell.

WWB are the only ammo that I have had jams with my HS2000 3rd gen. And it is not that often. Not sure if it is the poundage of my spring or just getting a bad load every now and then. This is my experience with an old HS that has a lot of rounds through it. Sure the XD’s should be a little better.

I like the Remington 124gr better than the WWB 115gr. They are a little more but my HS and I seem to shoot better with them. Plus the darn 115gr wont go throw a Springfield phonebook and so is no good going through hard drives or old computer parts. Remingtons are cheep and I can dispose of data on these old drives.
