Went shooting with my XDS .45 ACP Saturday. Took all these types of ammo Winchester FMJ, Monarch FMJ, Sig Sauer Elite, Hornady ZMax, Dynamic Research Technology. 100 rnds each of the Winchester and Monarch, 50 each of Hornady and DRT and only 18 rnds of Sig Sauer. Results varied but were acceptable at 7, 10, 15 and 25 yrds. All except the Sig that kept jamming. 7 jams out of 18 attempts.
Anyone else have issue with Sig Ammo. After I compared it to the others and it appears to be a shorter round. See above pic. Its the one in the middle. Whatcha all think?
Testing out the Spectre! The previous owner told me he’d never fired it (which I believe, based on its condition) but I’m not the type to let a gun sit in a safe unfired. It didn’t quite fit in my pistol case, so I partially disassembled it. I also brought my S&W 632 and my Dan Wesson Valor, which is my absolute favorite pistol.
As for the Spectre: the first target is 10 rounds of Aguila 124gr FMJ. The gun shot quite accurately with this ammo, but 2 shots in 30 failed to cock the hammer - they still fed and ejected without any jamming, but they were a hair underpowered for the action.
The second target is 15 more rounds of Aguila 124, fired quickly this time.
The third target is a full 30-round mag of American Eagle 147gr flat point, which the gun also liked. Absolutely no failures of any sort, which was surprising given the different bullet geometry.
The last target is 20 rounds of Freedom Munitions 115gr FMJ reloads, and holy shit I couldn’t hit a thing with this. I actually didn’t photograph the first FM 115 target I shot because it was so bad that I figured I was just getting used to the gun still, but no, I think the gun just really doesn’t like this stuff. I’m not sure it’s the ammo’s fault, since I’ve shot cases of this stuff through a 92F and G19 with no issue, but this particular gun hates it.
Absolutely no magazine-related failures all day! I honestly figured the weirdo quad stack mag would give me trouble but it never did. I’m actually kind of overjoyed.
