    This report is from June but this is a new forum I thought I'd post what I did with my new XDs.

    XS505xxx... Picked up yesterday. Cleaned it out good and relubed. Shot it today for the first time.

    150 rounds of my 230 grain fmj reloads.. no issues
    20 230 Speer Gold Dots... no issues
    25 230 Remington Golden Sabres... no issues
    25 185 Hornady Critical Defense... no issues

    Cleaned and lubed when I got home and everything looks good.

    I went through my usual routine with a new gun. Two hands, strong hand and weak hand. I loaded the chamber and topped off the mag when shooting. I shot some slow to get an idea where it printed and many fast to see how it cycled.It worked like a champ.[​IMG]

    Update...

    Since that first range visit with my new XDs I have put hundreds more rounds down range. I have yet to have any issues with it. I have run a box of Ranger 230 +P law enforcement in addition to the SD loads listed above. It eats everything. It is my EDC.

    The more I see these reports, the more I want one! Hard to find around here right now.

    I have had similar results with my XD-S. No problems what so ever with any loads used, including my own home brews. Like others, before I took the gun out to shoot, I detail stripped it, cleaned it and lubed it just like my Glocks. It runs great.

    They are in my neck of the woods also. I've had one on order for awhile now.
