The 115-grain projectile weight is common for the 9x19mm caliber and offers a flat trajectory for pinpoint aim. Speer’s street-proven Gold Dot hollow-point bullet features bonded copper plating that has been permanently attached to a swaged lead core via an electrolysis process. By design, the bullet can penetrate through barriers like auto-glass and drywall with little deflection while maintaining the capacity for expansion. During entry into a threat, the bullet’s mushroom-like increase in diameter will create a large wound cavity while dumping massive amounts of energy into vital organs in order to yield a quick, effective stop.
Speer has been a popular name in bullet design since 1928 and is well-known today as heavy supplier of duty and practice ammunition for U.S. law enforcement agencies. Their commercial box loads are made with the same level of care and detail as products they manufacture to meet FBI and DHS contracts.
