  1. Blue 147 FP In my XDm 5.25” 9mm 16 lb Wolff spring. 3k elevation. 50*. Blue 147fp-1.140 OAL. 3.8CFE =921fps. Very accurate excellent recoil followup timing. 3.9CFE.=950. Accurate. 4.0CFE=972 too snappy
  2. I’ve got a couple from GoGun USA work very well on XDm platform. XDm 5.25” 40 and 5.25” 10mm. Small modification to Comp-Tac holster allows it to go in and out easy. However only legal in limited and open class for USPSA so may as well run open style holster https://gogunusa.com/products/copy-of-gas-pedal-cg-for-sig-p320
  3. I had a 460 Rowland conversion on my XDm 4.5” 45. Running a 22 lb Wolf spring. Worked up numerous loads for max power while still retaining 45 acp accuracy. Unfortunately after two barrels from them I abondened project. It kept destroying guide rod lips in a very short time and even after having them make a custom HD rod it’s was still an issue. Specs on barrel lug are considerably different than stock which is impacting guide rod lip at off angle and destroying it. With that said the best loads were with Starline 460r brass and Longshot. Tests at 3k elevation, 35* and 70% humidity average. Meant to be a back up gun for grizzly, cats and wolves when hunting in NW Montana. Since acquired a XDm 5.25” 10mm and working on loads for it. 460R loads we settled on while still giving excellent accuracy: 200 Lehigh Penetrators , longshot 13 grn, Fed 150, 1.252oal=1524fps. Primer sign at 1680range 230 Berry’s FMJ, Longshot 11grn,fed 150. 1.265oal=1350fps. Primer fail at 1550 range
  4. I purchased tungsten rod .300 diameter. 12” rod for $100. Able to make 4 inserts for several XDm’s. 2.7oz per insert slides right into stock guide rod. Had a bit left over to make additional weights for inside grip covers.
  5. Another vote for Peltor tactical 500. Get the gel cups for them as well. AS much as i like getting to the range middle of the work day, as a self employed individual I still need to answer calls for work.

    Recently got my Boombah Hellcat Mids. These fit like someone molded them to my entire foot front to back and top to bottom. Light but sturdy and supportive while turning and transitioning. Will be ordering another pair ASAP.
  8. Peltor Tactical 500. Bluetooth and 26 dB rated. Gel cups made even quieter. Add in gel cups and rechargeable battery. My Howards didn’t fit my head to well as the head band was more U shaped, these are more rounded but extend out for a much taller head. Comfy all day even for my big ears. I got mine on sale from Midway for $98. Couldn’t pass up the deal
  9. If you don’t know wrap a cool wet towel below area you don’t want heated. A heat gun on hi works fastest to spot heat the area. A hair dryer will work but takes longer and will warm more of the.holster. Just be careful of the trigger area that it doesn’t heat and reshape or you’ll have to fix that too after.
  10. Just modify the area right around the release. Push away and down so the “ L” gives more clearance.
  11. Just heat it a bit and reshape it to clear by flaring the lip away and then back up. I also just did same release as you on XDm 5.25 9mm.
  12. New rules also say aftermarket mag releases allowed. So can I put a pddle style release like a CZ Shadow 2 has on my XDm now? Also the rule of adding metal weight of significant amount ie 1/2 oz or more to grip area refers to external plugs. I assume I can add some inside the void under the removeable backstrap (which doesn’t alter external part of grip and can only be seen and accessed by removing pin and backstrap) to bring weight up now to take advantage of 4oz over listed weight?
  13. Dawson .100 on all my XDm’s . Definitely a better sight picture. Just get correct height you need for POA you want.
  14. Pull your mag springs out and give a them a little stretch for a temporary fix. You should have 3-4 coils easily exposed and 5 on longer capacity mags before trying to put baseplate back on. Also 4-6 feet ejection is pretty soft load. 8-10 closer to normal.
  15. 5.25 isn’t a dovetail rear sight like other XDm’s . You need a bolt in adapter plate for the optic needed. And are available from a couple places. Quick and easy swap
