I had the same problem with the the Critical Defense. It happened once on two different trips to the range. I've only put 350 rounds through xds 9 4 inch so I've got a bit more to go for break in. I won't use the Critical Defense for concealed carry until the problem is solved by more rounds down range or sending it back to SA. Have had no problems with JHP of different brands It's a confidence thing.I only have that issue once in awhile when using Hornady Critical Defense.
