Well, I finally was able to get to the range to break in my new XDs yesterday and am Extremely happy with it!

All shots were taken at ten yards using "Shoot N See" targets.

I started off with 25 rounds of 230 gr Sellier & Bellot FMJ bullets to get the gun warmed up. Zero issues. Gun fires about 2" low left of point of aim...probably my fault.:o

Then I switched over to 230 gr LRN reloads. I shot 50 rounds without any hiccups...

Next I shot 100 rounds of 230 gr JHP reloads and only had 3 failure to feeds...2 from my son's girlfriend limp wristing and once from my wife who did the same, so I don't really count them.:rolleyes:

I finished up with another 25 rounds of the Sellier & Bellot FMJ bullets to compare with how I started....No issues.

200 rounds of mixed bullets and, in my opinion, no issues...love it!:D

The cardboard backing for the target had a grapefruit sized hole missing after it was all said and done! :evil:

Inspecting the gun after the shoot, the gun was pretty sooty after shooting 150 rounds of reloads over Unique powder. Especially from the LRN bullets.:barf:

Overall I am ECSTATIC over the performance of this gun! I isn't a target pistol by any stretch of the imagination but for a CC handgun in .45ACP it will get the job done! I feel confident that this gun will serve me well as my primary carry weapon!:D:D

Maybe, maybe not. My biggest gripe about the XDm is that the factory-installed sights typically aren't zeroed correctly, but it didn't bother me too much as I just had night sights installed and the gunsmith did the work.

At 10 yds, 2" low left on a man size ctr of mass isn't worth worrying about! The sight radius is only 5.25" so I'm not complaining! :evil:
