Speer has developed a great reputation with both its Lawman and Gold Dot lines of ammunition. This 223 Remington version of its Gold Dot bullet is no exception. Each round is loaded with a 55 grain soft point bullet and is meant for law enforcement purposes. That makes this 223 Remington Gold Dot ammo a great option for home defense or for hunting large varmints like coyote. This ammo has an advertised muzzle velocity of 3,220 feet per second, and it will have terrific and controlled expansion whether shot from a 16 inch or a 20 in barrel. This ammo is great for use out of ARs and out of bolt action rifles.
Speer is known for premium ammunition for self defense, law enforcement, range training and competition shooting. Their ammo is for accuracy and consistency, and the Gold Dot line is considered by many to be the best self defense round available.

I have used this ammo in the past and it's great stuff. I would of given it 5 stars for value but in this time it's just nice to find some in stock. My order was at my door within 24 hrs. In this world today that is unheard of.

Q: Is this a good round for deer?
Posted On: 9/11/2021
A: Thanks for reaching out Shayne! The 223's suitability for deer hunting is a hot topic. All of that aside, this police-grade ammo is about the best you could choose for deer hunting. It's going to give you that deep penetration and accompanying wide terminal expansion you need to make efficient use of the 223 for taking medium size game.
Q: Is this a good self defense ammo?
Posted On: 5/2/2021
A: Thanks for reaching out Mao! Speer Gold Dot is arguably the best 223 Rem for self-defense on the market. It's cop ammo – my own home defense rifle is loaded with this exact ammo as I type.
Q: Is this corrosive ammo?

By: Paula Kellard
A: No ma'am, this is non-corrosive ammo. Really the only ammo you have to be careful about with corrosion these days is old military surplus!
Q: Whats the difference between the speer gold dot “duty ammo” and the “self defense ammo”? They’re both soft points and both nickel plated

By: Willie Miranda
A: To be perfectly honest with you, the real difference is the marketing! One is marketed to cops, the other is marketed to the consumer market, but they're both available to the public and interchangeable with one another.
