I’ve seen some ridiculous reports of 80% failure rates in classes. Any company that put out guns like that would be out business fairly quickly.
My agency had 63 XD40s for 10 years. As the primary firearms instructor, I never saw, and no one reported, any malfunctions with duty Ammo. We had some FTFs with the Winchester WinClean Non toxic rounds that we had to use on our indoor range, but I saw that round malfunction Glocks, M&Ps, and Sigs as well.
We fired 1,000 rounds of Ranger SXT through each of three test guns with no malfunctions.
My main criticism was the magazines. I felt like the steel that they used was too soft. We made sure to have plenty of beater magazines for training so the duty mags were always in good condition.
