Hello people.

Just got a SA-XD 45 Tactical from my dad as a bday present. Currently loaded with WWB JHP (only JHP 45s on hand) but I just ordered a box of Winchester Ranger-T +P 230gr. Not my first pistol, but it is my first 45 ACP. I'd be interested to know what your preferred carry rounds are in the XD (especially the 45). I read somewhere that Federal HST's don't feed well, and I'm hoping thats not the case.

Thoughts?

Welcome to the forum from louisiana! Don't no about the HSTs but mine handled the variety I put through it flawlessly. Congrats on a great weapon!

Welcome. Don't know enough to help you. Go to the "Ammo Can" part of the forum, that's where to ask that. Search around in the different forums there is a lot of good people on this site. BTW, I have the 45 service w/nite sites and love it.

Welcome!!

I've used Ranger T 230gr and Spear Gold Dot 230gr, both worked perfect. Also tried Winchester White Box Personal Defense from Walmart, the XD ate it all up. I've put through over 8 types/brands ammo (combo of JHP and FMJ) and not one hiccup.

Welcome from Florida.

Whatever type of ammo you decide to use for carry, make sure to fire a few magazine to make sure it feeds reliably.

you know, I didn't even think about it until now, but I think it's the only present I can remember him buying me since adulthood. Not sure why he chose now to do it. I did just have my first child. He's pretty stoked about it. I got him a springfield t shirt for his bday. He's big into Sigs and HKs. I think he just had this XD laying around anyway. He's got a 4inch XD and subcompact XD in 45. Maybe he didn't need it.

Nice XD!

Be sure to run some rounds of your carry ammo through the pistol to ensure they run.
