Hi all. New to the forums, and XD ownership. Did my research and decided on a compact XD 9mm for my first handgun. Took it to the range today and put 98 rds. through it. It failed to load a new cartridge twice out of 100 rounds. On both occasions the slide did not close all of the way, so I dropped the mag and tried to eject the cartridge by pulling back on the slide, but the slide was stuck tight. With a considerable amount (alot!!!)of force I was able to pull it back and get it cleared. On both occasions, upon inspection of the jammed cartridges I noticed damage to the lip of the brass casing, as if it were snagged on something and pulled back in one spot. What could the casing be hanging up on? Is it the ammunition or the gun that is the problem. I was using Winchester 115gr FMJ ammo. The range official said he had never seen damage like that and that he thought it was probably the ammo. Has anybody else had this experience. Any opinions or advice would be appreciated.
This is my home defense weapon, and I would hate to have this happen to my wife in a bad situation.
