Default Range Report - XDm-9 Compact

Click all Images to Enlarge


As promised I finally got to shoot my new XDm-9 Compact and do a range report.

Here it is:
Attachment 24591


First thing I did was put the largest back strap of the gun. I have the largest one on my XDm-45; so, I will definetly need it on the compact 9mm. Second, I bought extra mags before my trip to the range (I had to order them from Springfield). I had 4 13 round compact mags and two 19 round mags with the X-tension sleeves on them and after loading the mags three times and one round in the pipe each time I went through 273 rounds. A whole mix of ammo Magtech 115gr. FMJs, Magtech Guardian Gold 124gr JHP+Ps, Hornady TAPs, some Federal 147 FMJs, some my LRN reloads.

It never missed a beat, never jammed once. I was surprised because even my beretta won't feed my reloads.

I shot it back to back with my XDm-45 and the recoil is quite similar between +P 9mm and standard pressure .45 ACP.

Here are the groups of my XDm-9 Compact at 14 yards with the Hornady TAP loads:

Attachment 24577



Here are the groups of my XDm-45 at 14 yards with Hornady TAP+P loads:
Attachment 24578
Attachment 24579




I group better with my .45 but I have also shot it a lot more, but for a compact with a grip that I can get barely two fingers on, it great. I think its going to be my concealment gun for when I have to wear dress clothes (which is often).

Any questions, just ask.

14 yards with a compact... yeah I'd say that's good shooting. Good report and well done.

After shooting my Brother in law's earlier model XD-M .40 and seeing your review, I'm beginning to think I need one of these. I handled one a couple weeks ago but had just bought a new rifle project I need to scope. After the clerk brought out the kit with the extended mags, it nearly followed me home though.

Indeed. No hiccups, variable ammo & loads and targets are DOA.

The recoil was not bad at all and the flash is quite subdued compared to other +P loads.

Here is the TAP ammo:
