  1. Springfield XD40 home defence

    I just purchased a Springfield XD40 For concealed carry and home defence. What is your best suggestion for ammo that has the best knock down power without compromising accuracy. Thanks

    180 gr, speer gold dot hollow point. It is what our local sheriff's department uses for their duty ammo and I've never had a single problem with it in either my XD or Glock. For the range, use any 180gr FMJ. Both guns ate and spat them out. You have a fine weapon there and I personally haven't found ammo that it is finicky with.

  4. Hornady Critical Defense is my choice for home defense. consistent expansion and it doesn't over-penetrate so it dumps all its energy in the target

  5. Thanks for the info I will look into both loads.

    I feel any hp round will suffice.
