Ive got the 5.25 barrel and shoot Hornady 180gr XTP.  Very nice shooting, soft recoil, accurate.  Happy as a clam with mine.  Its in a Diamond D Alaskan Guide Holster.

At that range, anything without a hollow point.

I would stay away from the XD. Outsourced parts and questionable reliability.

I personally run a Glock 40 MOS.
No I'm not a Glock fan boy

Underwood ammo is what you want. They load 200gr XTP's pushing 1250fps

They also offer a 115 gr Lehigh penetrator going 1700fps!

I would like to see your source on information.
I have heard nothing but great reviews, and having multiple XDs, I have never had an issue with either of them.

Go shoot both and pick the size that you like best.
I would go for the 4.5, but the 5.5 might be more comfortable for many while shooting the 10MM.

I have an XDM in .40 and XDS in .45acp and have never had any performance or reliability issues.  1000rds+.

Its 5.25............and if you check real world testing of premium hand gun ammo you will see a lot of the results advertised (esp. velocity) are exagerated.  The hornady ammo did well in independant testing.

It came from the HS 2000 and when it was called that, you couldn't give them away. And SAI has been known to source parts from Brazil, China , Taiwan and I believe Korea as well. And as for the Underwood ammo, it delivered as advertised through my Chrono in both 115gr and 200gr.

I have heard great stuff about underwood, but never used it. I shoot buffalo bore 220 gr hard cast out of my Glock 20 and love it. I have killed two black bears with it, one shot each.

The XD is the Springfield Armory licensed version of the HS 2000.
Both are very good pistols. Like any pistol they can have issues, but so far from my experience they have been exemplary in quality and reliability.

While I have replaced the triggers (Powder River Precisions for my XDís and XDsís) on every pistol I have owned, they have a decent factory trigger. You do not have to do spring, striker,  or do barrel replacements like some others to shoot extremely well.

By "Others" you mean hi-point right?  :chuckle:
