    Question Is it ok to shoot cast bullets?

    123
    I own a XD-9 and am considering a XD-40 tactical.I am wondering if the XD barrels have the same problems as the Glock barrels with using cast bullets.Thanks

    Polygonal rifling and lead bullets can cause some serious pressure spikes, you may wanna be careful doing that, it voids your warranty on both your gun and your shooting hand, and you can't get an extended warranty on body parts.

    XD barrels are standard rifling not polygonal. As with any lead bullets just keep the velocity down to minimize leading.

    Sorry, wasn't clear... HK's and Glocks have polygonal barrels and that is why you wouldn't want to shoot lead cast bullets out of them.

    I shoot them in my M&P-9 but I use a full copper jacket in my G-19. Just playing on the safe side.

    Most manufactures void warranty just for shooting reloads. I load .40's to factory velocities in my HK USP and never any issues. Shoots accurate and No excessive leading either.
