Does anyone have a recommendation on ammo for a xd 9mm sub compact? I was nudged towards a hornady round but figured I would see what yall think. And how much different does a pistol perform from practice rounds to defense rounds? I have read that the xd is accurate to 10 yards but starts to slide off after that, can anyone verify that and what distance do yall practice at?

I have a service (4" barrel) XD Mod2, and have not found any "drop-off" in its inherent accuracy, at any distance out to 25 yards. Not sure where that idea came from... this is a well-built pistol. Admittedly, however, I've never fired a subcompact XD...

I use 124 grain FMJ practice ammo (mostly from Freedom Munitions, in Idaho), and use 115 grain JHP (Hornady) for carry/defense, in order to get reasonably similar recoil during practice.

Hope that helps...

Hornady and Speer along with Federal Hydra Shok are all proven ammo and you can't go wrong.

I shoot and carry Hornady American Gunner .380 JHP and 9mm JHP +P. I trust this ammo completely. I haven't been able to find American Gunner .45ACP locally yet.
