I'm looking at my new yet unfired 5" .45 and while the feed ramp (part of the barrel) looks OK and is factory polished, the throat below it is blue and looks kinda rough with pits.

Also when the slide is locked back, wiggle your barrel fore to aft and see how much space remains between the ramp and the throat. On mine I still see a gap with the barrel aft.

Don't know if the same thing exists with your XD or if it would affect the feeding with some hollow point bullet designs. Again, mine still unfired. Try some FMJ ammo. :) :) :)
