I have a new XDs that I have ran about 100 rounds through. I have had trouble when chambering rounds with a full clip. Has anyone else had this problem? Anyone have a a fix for this?

What type of trouble? There are many things that could cause a A FTF problem, the magazine, the ramp, and the type ammo you are using are some..

Taxman I am having this problem with a full clip. The round will jam as it tries to go up the ramp. I have 3 clips and it seems to happen with 2 of them.

Welcome to the XD Forum Bgrayny1 !!

Compare the 1 magazine that works with the 2 magazines that don't...

Are the feed lips bent ? Are the springs when depressed moving up perpendicular in the mag

or do they tilt to one side ? Is there a burr of the feed ramp...? Are you using FMJ or HP ammo...?

More info is needed for us to diagnose the probable cause of your FTF ( Failure To Feed ).

We had a lady at my last IDPA match that was having no end of trouble with FTFs and FTEs. They finally disassembled the magazines, brushed them out and put a very light coat of oil in them.

That fixed one, but the other appeared to have too much metal near the lips. They compared it to someone else's mags that were working fine. Visible difference. Both looked like normal magazines, well finished edges, no burrs. But the ones that had problems were visibly deeper (front to back) along the lips. Like the sheet metal was not trimmed back at the front edge of the lips. Without a good one to compare it to, it would be hard to identify the issue.

Well then, I would dis-assemble the magazines as Balota suggests in his post.

You didn't say if the follower in the mag was tilting when depressed...that can also cause a FTF.

XD Chamber problem

Are you walking the slide forward or are you hitting the release and letting it go? The slide is meant to be slammed forward by the release....walking it forward could be the problem.

This will help...

I had poor results with the XDs feeding from a full magazine when I tried to "rack" it manually. I realized I NEVER had a problem when I emptied a magazine, loaded a full mag and released the slide forward.
I now habitually load the chamber from a full magazine by way of slide release... works EVERY time. I'm happy.
p.s. - I love the XDs. It is my EDC since the first range date.
