I bought the gun used from a gun store. Put 300 rounds through it, I had no problems with it till now. I am having feeding problems, seems like it sticks every other round, failure to chamber round feed ramps look okay. Need your guys opinion! thanks here are some pics

Try a different brand of ammo. If that doesn't improve things, I'd then try changing out springs (both mag and recoil springs).

^^^That's actually a good idea. SA has a good customer service policy, and they might even cover shipping as well. Again, I'd try the ammo and springs first (easier and faster), and if that doesn't do it, send it in and let the pros have a looksee.

Take her down & clean.....Then try different ammo. If that doesn't work
I'd then try changing out springs (both mag and recoil springs).

My XD 40 would not take Aguila .40 S&W . I switched to American Eagle PMC, Speer Lawmans, Hollowpoints, and even factory reloads and never had another issue again.

Doesn't look like its hanging up on anything from the chamber...check your magazine for problems.

Does it happen with different magazines? If that isn't it have you switched brands of ammo?

different ammo, new mags, an OCD type of cleaning. if that dosent fix the problem, send the xd back to springfield, they have awesome customer service.

Everyone knows Springfield has great customer service because people are always having to send guns back to them. I can't count the number of times I have seen people frustrated at the range with a malfunctioning gun they can't figure out and its a Springfield.... (in all fairness though, 60% of the time its some form of short-barreled M1A)
