Speer is an ammunition company based on the American traditions of hard work and dedication. The company was founded in 1943 by Vernon Speer, who got things going by making his own bullets for reloaders when he realized there was a serious shortage on the market. He got things going by producing rifle-caliber bullets, but he also understood the value of handgun rounds and, in fact, was responsible for the first mass-production of jacketed handgun bullets. As time went by Speer began producing completed rounds and then began manufacturing their now sought-after Lawman and Gold Dot lines.
These .40 S&W rounds are a part of Speer’s Gold Dot line. At 165 grain they’re considered middle-weight rounds, flying down-range at good speeds while retaining enough weight to strike targets with a solid impact. These are Hollow Point rounds and begin to expand on impact, simultaneously decelerating to create a large, incapacitating wound cavity. Each round leaves the barrel of your gun at a muzzle velocity of 1150 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 484 foot-pounds. These are Speer Gold Dot rounds, specifically designed for superior self-defense use.
There are 20 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition. That’s just enough to keep your gun and spare magazine loaded and ready for personal protection purposes. If you’d like to get some trigger time in, which is highly recommended due to the fact that defense rounds produce more recoil than target rounds, you’ll need to order extra boxes. It’s well worth the extra purchases for the peace of mind training time brings. After all, your life or the lives of your loved ones may one day depend on whether or not you got enough realistic training. Speer manufactures ammunition at their longtime factory in Lewison, Idaho. If you want to load your daily carry weapon with the same rounds countless members of law enforcement rely on, you want Speer Gold Dot rounds. Order now, and be well-prepared.
