I was told that by the gun shop owner that he would advise me to not shoot factory reloads out of the XD9 i just bought. anyone know why that is? he said something about how the XD was not made to shoot reloads and i thought that was kind of strange.

I use to have an HS2000 which is identical to an XD. Pretty much all I shot through it were reloads. If the reloads are made correctly there should be no problems. Now Springfields policy might state reloads will void their warranty but that is another issue. Mark

Glocks are a no go on lead loads. Glock 40's and reloads is bad juju. XD's eat it all. The no reloads statement is a matter of CYA. I've been to ranges that rent XD's that only allow the use of their reloads and the guns seem just fine.

I've put about 4000+ rds of reloads through my dad's XD, no issues at all.

That is all I put through my XD's. Otherwise, what's the point?

All I have ever shot through my 3XDs are lead reloads. The Glocks with the polygonal rifled barrels are the ones you do not want o shoot lead out of.

Me thinks the guns hop owner is hoping his "sage advice" will have you coming
back to his shop to buy new ammo. :rolleyes:

It would be bad for you to shoot reloads through your pistol because he wouldn't be making money off of you buying factory ammo. You'd be saving way too much money and shooting way too often if you reloaded for your XD...that'd be terrible. It happened to me too.
