Picked up an XD45 two weeks ago. Love it. Literally sold all my glocks, bought and XD9 - sent it off to Robar for NP3. Trading into another XD45.

Excellent Kit.

I shot my XD-45 4" about 100 rounds with some 230 grain hardball, worked great. Also some Hornady 200 grain defense ammo worked great too.

however with some 180 grain semi-wadcutters it did not work well at all, I'm thinking the recoil spring is too heavy for that load, they were not wide open top loads so that is quite possible.

Mine should be back in Toledo from being springerised, can't wait to shoot it some more, I'm working my way up to having (22) magazines total, 20 to shoot and 2 to keep loaded with carry ammo (I will rotate them).

I have a sililar experience with my XD45. I fired maybe 100rds already and got one or two stove pipes or failure to eject. This is due to a milder than normal load of a 200gr LSWC over 4.5 grs of WST. This is no shortcoming since this gun wasn't designed for light target loads. Additionally, this gun is brand new and recoil spring tension should be at it's greatest. I anticipate that this gun will feed my target loads with higher reliability after 500+rds go down the tube.It's a nice gun....

Right Target is the XD with this load.....

I have nearly 1500 rounds through my XD45 and not one single problem. I fed it pretty much anything in the 200-230 weight I can find and no issues of any kind. It is more accurate than I am. I changed the sights to XS 24/7 Big Dots and LOVE them...really fast target acquisition. I also had Scott at Springer give it a good action and trigger job. Wow what a diff. I have been carrying XD's for three years but this is the best by far. Now I need a sub in 9mm for deeper CCW and jogging.
