ammo choice
 
My XDM .40 caliber will be here Monday. What do you guys recommend to feed it?

For target practice? Personal defense? Home defense? Depends on your needs.

ndtiger 01-10-2010 01:43 AM

looking for a round for defense and stopping power. One with minimum recoil but still has a punch.

I'm a Hornady fan.

A lot. Everything. Once you get her broke in, she'll tell you what she wants! :D

That XD will eat anything you feed it. Try a few different bullets and see what works best for you. I'm a Federal fan, I carry HSTs, give them a look and I think you'll be impressed.

For practice shooting, my XD45 has seemed satisfied with Aguilla, Blazer, UMC, and another that i can't recall. For defense, I have some federal hollowpoints loaded.

I too, am a huge Hornady fan. My choice for self-defense is TAP ammo. Excellent round.

Have to agree with the bunch here. It will let you know what it likes best, but for my flavors:

Hornady TAP
Critical Defense

Federal HST

Corbon DPX

Win PDX

Slo

Yep XDs eat anything and everything. I feed mine a steady diet of whatever is on sale, and keep Gold Dots in her around the house (if it's her turn). There are many makers of quality personal defense ammo and it's hard to go wrong with any.

Have fun.
