So I'm about to buy a 9mm XD (first gun, very excited!) and was just wondering...What are you guys carrying in yours? A friend has been recommending Federal Hydra Shoks in 124gr for EDC. From what I've read, everyone recommends to carry what feeds best, so I just figured I'd ask around.

Pretty much all premium JHP's from the major manufacturers are going to work just fine in pretty much anyone's pistol.

However, what works great in one person's pistol might not work so great in the next, even if it is the same model.

So, I'd recommend picking up a couple boxes of different ammo, try 'em out, and find what works best, reliability and accuracy-wise, in your pistol in your hands.

And while I don't own an XD, I'll trust any one of the following in my 9mm pistols:

Gold Dots, HST, Ranger-T, TAP/FPD, DPX, PDX-1.

My XD isn't a picky eater. I feed it whatever hollowpoints that I can find in stock in local stores...
