Range Report: XD(M) 4.5" 9mm
So here's the range report from yesterday:
Gun: XD(M) 4.5" 9mm in OD Green/Black
Ammo: Sellier & Bellot (S&B) 9mm Luger FMJ 115g
Range: Palm Beach Shooting Center - Lake Worth, FL
XD(M) Impressions (prior to shooting):
Ammo Impressions (prior to shooting):
I put 100 rounds down range (all at 10 yards) in the following method:
Load 1 round - shoot
Load 3 rounds - shoot
Load 5 rounds - shoot
... all odd numbers up to
Load 19 rounds (full mag capacity) - shoot
*After working my way up to 19 rounds I retested and was able to release the full mag with the slide forward and no round chambered (all 19 in the mag, none in the chamber, slide forward).
Only used one of the 2 included magazines. Will repeat this procedure with my other mag.
XD(M) Shooting Impressions:
I like pictures, so here's a whole bunch:
Rounds 1-9: Note very 1st round is a bullseye at 10 yards!
Brought the target home and realized that the backside of the targets told the story as you can see all 100 shots in aggregate:
Backside of target 1:
Backside of target 2:
Great gun and good shooting!
Nice shooting. Also, I enjoyed the process by which you chose this gun.
You researched your decision more than anyone I've ever seen. I respect the thought you put into your decision. May the XDm serve you as well as mine has served me.
I have the same gun (but in all black). With a full mag — and one in the chamber — the magazine won't drop.
Love shooting mine!
After I shot Friday, I did a full cleaning an used Hoppe's Lubricating Oil, sparingly.
Shooting today, there was no perceivable smoke today. There was nothing being "blown back" while shooting. And the gun was much easier to clean, post-shooting.
I liked the ammo after the 1st time shooting with it and I like it even more after shooting with it today.
Very nice shooting :) but where are the pics of the new gun??
It sounds like you've found a keeper. Thanks for the report.
