    I just bought a box of FMJ shells to practice with. That is all Wal Mart had in stock. Is it OK to shoot in my new XDm 9mm?

    Yes. You should be fine. FMJ stands for full metal jacket - and there is nothing wrong with shooting them from your pistol, provided they are the right caliber. :cool:

    Yes. Blazer or Whitebox get used in aour guns when we can get it. XD is a fine weapon and a good choice. Good luck with that.

    Just make sure you use hollow points for your self protection load. 9mm FMJ is good only for range ammo.
