I was thinking of shooting my 40 tonight since it's a fun shoot for me, but I only have 2 mags for it. Typically I need 3 or 4 mags to complete a stage. Can you stuff 40 rds in 9mm mags and have them feed at least semi reliably?

Very interesting question...I have a thread open wondering how to mod .40 mags to 9mm myself. Never thought of going the opposite way.

Good luck...I'll have to keep a check on the replies you get.

youll have to spread the feed lips probably. I'd recommend just buying dedicated mags for each caliber

Loading .40 cartridges into 9mm mags works fine and I didn't have to modify a thing. They hold 8 rounds of .40 S&W. I've been doing this for over a year, since I have both 9mm and .40 XD pistols.

Didn't get to shoot last night as I got there too late, but slide racked about 40 rds through using the 9mm mags before leaving for the range and didn't have a feed issue so I was going to go with it.

fwiw, the 15 rd mags hold 11 rds of 40. Perfect for a production class shooter. :)

Doesn't a Beretta 92/96 mag work in an XD? How many 9mm rounds will fit in a 11rnd Beretta 40 mag? Or 40's in a 15 rnd 9mm mag?
all of the baretta mags i have tried in my XD wont lock in place, and they fit different. i dont know who started that but i have yet to find a baretta mag that works.

During the days of the klinton ban several members modified
baretta magazines to fit thier Xd`s. Springfield used to put a flier
in each Xd case for hi-cap mags that where modified baretta mags.
baretta mags need to have a mag catch(to match the xd`s) cut in
the front of them to lock up correctly in a Xd. Before the hack posts
had some info on this.

The Beretta mags lock into place in a notch of a front corner of the mag. The XD mags lock into place with a notch on the front flat face of the mag. If you cut a notch in the correct place on the Beretta mags, they will work--each individual has to decide if the effort is worth it. I cut a few so I could use the same mags in my CX4 and my XDs.

Works fine, but somewhat of a pain to modify the FS mags. They're also a little longer than the XD mags so spacing is a problem. BUT, it can be done and it works good.
