been doing my own stress test on my xd 40 full size (4" bbl), seeing how long it'll go without lube and not jamming. so far i'm at 9 months, shooting every 2 weeks, 200 rds per for the first 6 months, then every 3 weeks for the past 3 months, same allotment. so that's a total of 3200 rds of no lube over a 9 month time span. the only maintenance i've done is taking a tooth brush and cleaning out all the fuzz that builds up from every day carry once a month. the first 1000ish rds were rounds that jason loaded for me and everything else has been s&w white box from walmart.
jason come january i'll have to put in another order with you, with a better neck crimp this time around. (if you remember the initial feed issue i mentioned) i still feel like i shorted you last time since i was expecting fmj's when you gave me jhp's so i'll make sure it's worth your time this time around.
