Well, as I posted before, the first time I went to the range with my XD40, I had SEVERAL FTF's while using the target ammunition that I was recomended by my range. So I used the advice I got on the fourm and I tried WWB....put 200 rounds through it today without a single malfunction!! Thanks for the help everyone!

What ammo were you having problems with? I have found that WWB has been flawless in my new XD-40. I did have some trouble shooting a cheap Remington load, however.

Dont get too happy unless you like using just 1 or 2 diff types of ammo. If you want your gun to not be picky about ammo, clean up the extremely tight and most likely, rough breach throat. My XD40 was extremely picky until I pulled out the dremel and removed some small burrs and re rediused the breach throat to where the bullet would actually make a smooth transition from the mag to the barrel.

I have found the advice and recommendations from my local gun dealer to be completely based in fantasy and lack of knowledge. Your dealer's ammo recommendation confirms to me that this type of expertise is not isolated. I have received much better information right here on the board.

I second that. I like the range I shoot at and find that many questions I have about firearms are answered in (what I believe to be) an honest and straightforward way. But when it comes to some things, like purchasing "range" ammo, making a little money seems to outweigh customer satisfaction. Shameful.

Sometimes that "great range ammo" is what they got at clearance or just got the best deal on.

But as was stated, try a variety of ammo to see what your gun likes and what it doesn't.

None of mine (SIG, XD, Glock) like S&B, or some of the other mail order...used to use some from Century Arms that turned out to be way underpowered.
