greetings all. got a problem with my SA xdm 40. i got my ccw and bought this pistol back in march. a few weeks later i put some rounds down range without a hiccup. took it out for the 2nd time today and am having nothing but trouble with it. the ammo i was using is fiocchi 155gr hornady xtp hollow pointswith a nickel casing, 165gr fmj-fn from georgia arms(factory reloads), and federal 180gr fmj-fp.
the problem is it doesnt want to properly feed rounds from the mag into the chamber. ive tried 3 different mags so thats not it. the problem started at the range and was told i was probly "limp wristing it". which it seems i was. when i stifened up my wrists and held on a bit tighter itn ran fine. also ive only put around 100+- rds total through this pistol.
so i get home and take it apart run a boresnake through the barrel going both ways. oil everything and whipe it clean. cleaned off anything that looked like it was dirty. put it back together locked the slide back inserted a mag hit the release and it jammed again. can i limp wrist it when loading the 1st round??
what the jam looks like is:
as the slide comes forward and strips a round ut of the mag the bullet come up the ramp and just begins to slide into the chamber and it stops. i can see the rim of the casing is inline with the extractor but it wont slide up and complete the cycle.
ive never heard anything but good about the xd series of pistols. thats why i bought one. so anyone know what gives?
