    I've been using Federal HST, but I've had a couple FTE's when shooting slow. I rocked through three mags shooting fast with no problems. Of course FMJ there is no issues, I probably have a few thousand rounds with zero issues, but after buying a couple boxes of Federal HST, I put a few mags through to see how it would run and like I said, had a couple FTEs....

    edit : I have an XD9SC btw.

    A friend of mine uses the Hornady Critical Defense in his XD and likes it. Not sure he's put more than 50 rounds of SD ammo through it, but no complaints from him. I'd guess he has at least 1500 rounds of FMJ through it.

    I'd normally just buy 4 or 5 different boxes of ammo and try em out, but that shit's expensive :o

    Maybe I should go post on XDtalk and see what they say :o

    I've put at least 1,000 rounds of whatever cheap FMJ ammo I could buy through my XD45C, and a single box of Hornady SD (it's what was available in the store at the time) through just to make sure it works fine before I started carrying concealed. I haven't had a single FTF/FTE, so I didn't bother buying more of the pricey SD ammo just to try.

    I've been running Gold Dots in mine without any issues for about 2.5 years. Aside from the initial testing, it gets about 200 ran through it per year.

    Have also used Hydrashoks with good reliability.

    I have an XDm and it works with HST just fine so that is what I stick with.

    I use hornaday in my xd9sc with no issues. I've ran thru the mag quickly, and slowly. Never had any fte. I'm only about 500rds overall through it if that matters (mix sd & plinker).
