    i just got an XD .45 and was simply wondering what the best ammo to get for it is.
    i use wolf with my old com-bloc guns, and am also wondering if it is safe to use wolf ammo in the Springfield XD?

    any info would be appreciated

    Don't use steel cased ammo. Other than that, shoot whatever you want. I'd be reluctant to use WWII corrosive GI hardball but other than that for practice Winchester White Box or whatever is cheapest. For defense there are a number of quality loads available from CorBon, Winchester, Remington and others.

    For practice, I use REM-UMC, Blazer Brass, MagTech, Winchester White Box,
    and Fiocchi. For self D', I like Hornady's 200 grain (or 230 grain) T.A.P, Speer
    200/230 grain Gold Dots, and Federal's 230 grain Hydra-Shoks. I avoid steel
    cased ammo at all cost, and NO WOLF or Silver Bear junk goes down my XD's
    bore~!:scrutiny: :uhoh: :D

    I'd throw wolf at targets rather than use it in one of my guns as far as pistols go.

    Wolf works fine in my XD45. Ain't much of a gun if Wolf breaks it :)

    This may be a dumb question... but why are you all not shooting steel cased bullets out of your pistols? Also, what is the problem with wolf?

    That's for me to know and not you!
    My HK has seen more than 1500+ rounds of wolf 45 acp and I have had no issue. Steel cased ammo can be tougher on the extractor over a long time but extractors are cheap to replace.
