Lawman is attractively priced, and the cases are reloadable with clean-burning propellants and reliable CCI primers to complete the package.
Video Transcript:Speer is part of the ATK family of ammo brands, along with Federal, Blazer, and several others. The Speer brand is known mostly for producing self-defense ammo, like the famous Speer Gold Dot. But they also make products designed for training, like this Speer Lawman in 9mm.
Most of the ammo in the Lawman line is loaded to higher velocities than normal in order to mimic the recoil impulse of the more powerful Gold Dot self-defense loads. This round as the Lawman 124 grain 9mm, which has a muzzle velocity of 1,090 feet per second, which is just 60 feet per second shy of its Gold Dot counterpart. This provides slightly more recoil than the average 115 grain clinking load. It makes a great stand-in for a hollow point when doing serious self-defense training.
Each cartridge includes a boxer primed reloadable brass case. The lead core bullet is encased in a special Speer total metal jacket. Most full metal jacket bullets leave the lead base exposed, but Speer's total metal jacket completely encases the bullet. This allows for slightly less toxic lead residue to be released into the air when the round is fired, which is an ideal feature for training on an indoor range.
All of the ATK brands are known for their consistency and reliability and Speer Lawman is no different. We experienced flawless feeding and extraction in five different pistols and one carbine. It also provided outstanding accuracy, which was tested from the bench at 15 yards using a Beretta 92. We had one flier in our 10 round group, but all the other shots group in one big hole just a little low and left of our point of aim.
Speer Lawman in 124 grain is not just a good substitute for hotter self-defense ammo. It's accurate, reliable, and has just about anything else you could want in a practice load, including a reloadable brass.
