My Remington 597 loves the bulk Federal ammo, while the CZ 452 seems to prefer CCI standard velocity or subs. Maybe not target quality, but more than accurate enough for hunting accuracy.

My XD40 shot slightly left when I first got it; tried to move the rear sight, but didn't have much luck, and did not want to hit it too hard and potentially cause some damage. I'm glad I waited,...

Yep, I think I will get a revolver, too. I had a 22 mag and someone wanted it worse than I thought I did. I've missed it ever since... That was my snake pistol of choice.
Thanks to all for the...

Snake Shot in XD?

Does anyone fire snake shot through their XD? My Taurus pt-140 would cycle them just fine, but the XD won't, at least so far. I usually keep a few snake shot with me during the warm months when I'm...

I've now put about 300+ rounds through the pistol, of different brands and weights. I have to say it isn't picky at all about ammo so far, and I'm getting much more accurate with it, but it still...

My dealer finally got my new XD40 sub compact in today. I gave it a quick clean and fired 20 rounds or so of several brands and weights through it, and I think it's a keeper. It didn't seem to be...

Springfield XD 40
