Hello what is the best ammo for my XDM 3.8.
So far white box Winchester or federal at walmart seems ok. The federal seems to leave copper in barrel as the winshester does not.
Which is the best all around round and cheapest?

Federal HST 147gr +P for SD. The only rule I have about the plinking ammo is that I like to say with actual brass casings. Winchester white box is my go-to for the cheap stuff. I don't like shooting Wolf or Tula. Cheap stuff usually shoots quite a bit dirtier, and I have seen some guns be finicky about ultra-cheap ammo where WWB ran like a charm through them.

All jacketed ammo leaves copper in the bbl. So buy a box ro two of each & shoot them. Choose the one that is the most reliable & most accurate. There is a diff in form brand to brand as to accuracy, but it may not matter. Blasting at 7yds, everything goes into one ragged hole. Now stretch it out to 25yds, yeah, ammo brand matters.

Being new here I don't have to ask these questions as they have all been asked before and all I have to do is search. This site is loaded with great info. Thanks to everyone that helps out.

Cheapest and best are two different things. I bought 1000 rounds of Winchester nickel 9mm and I like it. I have also shot Wolf and it seemed to get the job done. I am not using them as SD but for the range they serve there purpose.
