Springfield 40 cal

I guess this is the place to ask this question. I recently just purchased my first handgun which was a SA XD 40. Was looking for some reviews on which ammo to use 180gr? 165gr? New to the handgun circuit

Re: Springfield 40 cal

Depends on what you plan on using the gun for. If your primary purpose is carrying for protection or home defense, you want to be using a "premium" hollow point round. I would recommend the Federal HST 180 gr round. NOT the Hydrashok. Big difference in the quality of the bullet between those two. Winchester SXT, and Remington golden saber are good personal defense bullets as well. But IMO, the HST is the best hollow point out there right now. If you are just target shooting/practicing, shoot the cheapest FMJs you can find. Its also a good idea to run a few of whatever personal defense round you end up selecting through the pistol as well, just to make sure it cycles properly.
