    I recently purchased the xds 3.3 inch barrel and bought Hornady critical defense 115 gr ftx. The first 4 rounds that I tried to chamber, jammed. After clearing the failure to feed and trying other rounds I would have some rounds chamber while others still jammed.

    I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this issue with this ammo.

    Maybe it's not the ammo and you are "limp wristing"
    Watch these two videos and try it again.

    how many did you hand release the slide on?
    how many total rounds thru this NEW gun.
    Get some decent grade ball ammo and let fly for a couple hundred.
    Let the slide slam home at each release.
    lube it well during breakin
    FIRM grip ! two hands unless your Popeye.
    Say cheese and pull the trigger:)

    Just bought an XDS 3.3. Got about 40 rounds thru it. Took it home and cleaned it. Planning on getting another 200 thru her today and another good cleaning. No failures with any of my Springfield's ever!

    Actually put 250 rounds thru her. Got her good and hot! Had the range do a sonic cleaning and then I brought it home and cleaned it again. No failures in 300 rounds
