    Anybody got any experience shooting LSWCs out of the XD45. Am considering buying one, but I shoot moly coated lead 200 grain SWCs and would like to know if they are gonna work before I buy the gun. They work fine in my 1911, but the XD seems to have a narrower feed ramp.

    I have an XD9 and XD40 and have no trouble with my reloads in those,,,but those reloads aren't SWCs.

    It's been my experience that XD's don't like SWC ammo.
    Not that some won't shoot it, but many of them don't feed it well.

    It'll feed anything else.
    I shoot a .45 in IDPA, so I don't need to worry about the size of hole I'm making. I shoot 200 grain rainier plated bullets in comp and practice.

    I'm reloading for mine and I haven't had any problems, not a single misfeed after at least 500 rds. I use a 200gr, jacketed SWC and keep my OAL around 1.25.

    In my experience, a gun that will shoot Ranier plated SWC's will shoot anything. I'll admit my experience is limited to 1911 45's, though -- Colt, Kimber and Wilson Combat.
