    Do XDs use polygonal rifling or standard cut rifling? Reason I ask is I just thought of this, but my son-in-law has an XD 40, is getting into casting, and I know the polygonal barrels are a no no with cast bullets, one reason I don't own a Glock. I know XDs aren't Glocks. Just hoping the look is just skin deep on 'em. LOL

    XD

    To the best of my knowledge they have conventional rifling. I only own one, and XD9SC. I haven't handled or inspected other calibers in this make. You could always go to their website and check out the specs.

    Pretty sure its conventional. Polygonal is old school (it's in my CZ82).

    They are cut rifling. I shoot cast bullets in my XD's in the following calibers: 9x19, .40 S&W, 357 Sig and .45 acp. Your son-in-law will be fine shooting cast bullets through his .40 S&W XD.

    Hope this helps.
