    The title basically says it all. What ammo do you guys like to put through your xd? I am a fan of buying in bulk, reasonably possible!

    CORRECTION: I don't have my xd yet, but it's on its way. Ordered today! Would also like to order/buy some ammo soon!

    Over the years I owned two compacts and one real large one in this caliber. I have never found 230gr at about 900fps to be lacking.

    Hornady Critical Defense or Winchester PDXI IT THE ONLY thing I would run in a personal defense.

    For range practice, I typically run my reloads. But when I take a training course, I'll run WWB or CCI Blazer or some other lower cost factory load in 230 gr round nose. For CCW, use what you find to be reliable and puts POI where you are aiming.
