XD load length


Recommended Posts

I just procured a 5" XD in .40. I'm wondering what length everyone loads to for these. I'm used to loading long for my STI's. It looks like you can load out to 1.155" or so and still stuff them in the mags.

Worse comes to worse I can just load them at factory .40 length. ;)

there is a guy who shoots with us that has 40 caliber XDs, with 180 grain lead loaded to factory length, its terribly unreliable.

i cant say for sure if its the bullet or the, brass he uses or what, but i watched him have 12 failures to feed in one stage.

is it just me, or does the 40 XD have LOTS recoil...feels even more than glock 40 caliber.
