    Looking for a good home and self defense ammo. Have never owned a large caliber pistol. It is a xd 45.

    Welcome to the forum :)

    Any of hornadys defense ammo would work great.
    If you are concerned with over penetration get some glassers (think thats what their called)
    Congrats the XD is great

    I have an XD. I love it. For HD/SD I use hornady TAP HP. For practice and plinking FMJ or round nose works just fine and is cheaper. Check out RWS, Sellier & Bellot, federal for plinking ammo

    Usually one uses 230gr fmj for practice. It would make a lot of sense to stick with a 230gr hp for home defense. Brand wise I prefer Hornady for price and Remington because you get 25 instead of 20. Also, Winchester white box (Wally world has good prices) is used by many.

    Enjoy your new purchase.
