So, my next purchase is going to be another XD. I already have a 3" XD 9MM Sub-Compact, but I'm looking for a fun gun, and maybe a home defense / car gun.

I've done considerable research on both, and both are VERY nice guns, but I wanna get some feedback from the more knowledgeable folks here.

Also, first post... Long time lurker.

460 rowland lends very little to SD ammo except higher recoil and lots of muzzle noise/flash. This is designed mostly as a hunting conversion where heavy solids at high velocity can penetrate thick skinned animals. The HP's used are selected to give about the same performance in expansion as most any other 230gr or 230+P SD in 45acp.
If it also comes with the std 45acp barrel, use that for SD ammo. The chambers are different from 45acp so you need a regular 45acp barrel to shoot your SD ammo. Keep the 460 for hunting or bottom end bear defense.
