I have plain ol' XD 45, not sure how old. I bought it used and I just love shooting this thing. Was thinking about trying the XDs, but kind of glad I held off, since hearing about the problems.
A few months back I started reloading with a used Lee Turret Press. I do 9mm, .45 and also 7.62 X 54R for my Mosins. Really enjoy reloading. Not an expert, but most of what I load goes bang. Learning something new about it every day.
