I carried my XD45 13+1 for about 2 years without a single problem. Also have put 1500 rounds (on my 2nd barrel) through it with out a single jam. Every time I went shooting a would draw my weapon and fire as I would in an emergency situation.
I personally won't let the same ammo just sit in my barrel for very long, maybe 1 month max. I clean and shoot my CC guns regularly.
