Winchester Ranger +p+ 127GR SXT (RA9TA). It's what I use in my xd9 and haven't had a single hiccup...a little pricey though.Totally fine!!
The XD is rated for P and +P on a continuous basis.
The stuff you want to avoid is +P+ designed for an UZI or something like that ... I've never even seen the stuff but I hear it is around.
Just because it fits the chamber and hasn't went boom ... Doesn't mean it won'tWinchester Ranger +p+ 127GR SXT (RA9TA). It's what I use in my xd9 and haven't had a single hiccup...a little pricey though.
That ammo is fine for the SC. some may say to get the short-barrel ammo, as regular ammo wont have the same velocity/accuracy through that barrel, but hey, a 9mm at 1200fps and 900fps is still a 9mm coming at you.
I agree! Our two XDs are recent purchases with very few rounds through them. :-( Could not find any 147 grain at two local Walmarts & 1 Academy. Uh-oh! I wish I started buying a box here and there before now. Even the online places are out of what I wanted to purchase just one week ago when they were available---higher than I wanted to pay, but at least you could order them or even backorder. Not now.That ammo will work just fine. In my opinion "tactical" is synonomous with defense. Not something I would shoot at the range ( because of cost vs. quantity) but would carry for defense rounds.
I dunno, depends on what ya read.ive heard that the 147's arent that great I read somewhere that the 124's are better, google 9mm self defensive rounds. I guess the 147's may not penetrate enough according to some.
Yeah, I use 124 gr +p. Golden Saber in XD9 SC. Local cops use it. Plenty good enough, I'm sure. Also have GS in .357 revo, too.After doing some research, I decided to go with Federal HST 124gr +P for my XD9SC. Got mine from Ammunitiontogo.com. They had the best pricing and shipping is not bad. Received my ammo today.
I agree that it's good ammo. I carry the HST 147 +p (P9HST4). Never had a problem of any kind.I run Federal HST 147 grain's through my 9SC and they work flawlessly, just like the 230 grain HST's do in my 45 Compact. It's good ammo.
"Hitch in your giddyup" is the proper term...
If you don't know what a "hitch" is, Grandpa McCoy in the Real McCoys and Chester in Gunsmoke both had a hitch in their step....
