That's good, but I've never heard of xd's needing a break-in period. I've never heard of any polymers needing a break-in period.

How full are you loading the mags?

It may be the grip firmness, possibly? Ammo type?

FWIW, I always load my mags one short for whatever reason.

Hope it straightens out soon and becomes a reliable shooter. For $600 it should be out of the fancy pancy box!

Glad to hear it's been improved but I'm with JD. If it's a carry piece, one failure is too many. My XD will eat anything I feed it. I've never had a jam of any kind except when I was just getting into reloading and was finding a very soft target load. I've never heard of an XD having this problem so I'm a little surprised. Keep shooting and let us know what happens.

This is the only feed issue I ever had with my XD as well. My uncle gave me 1k rounds of his soft lead wad cutter reloads that jam second round, every time. They also look like he may have seated the bullet too far in the jacket which may be part of it. (forgive my terms- I know nothing about reloading...)

Also get one of those rolled steel gauges to check the diameter of the cartridges you're feeding it. I'm pretty sure Cabelas or Midway has them. They are caliber specific and you just drop a round right in.

We ran across several boxes of PMC .45 ACP that was causing problems in my Dad's 1911's. We checked them with that gauge and they were all too large.

Either way, I thought you said the gun was sent off? What happened with that? XDs usually perform to perfection.
