Speer Gold Dot ammunition is chemically bonded to ensure maximum weight retention and to limit separation. These are important characteristics to consider in a self-defense ammo and hunting ammo. The soft-point bullets are cased in nickel-plated brass, with Boxer-primers and are non-corrosive.
Speer Ammunition is developed and manufactured in Lewiston, Idaho and dates back to 1943 when Vernon Speer started building bullets for consumers who could not buy ammunition during World War II. The signature Gold Dot line is unique in that the jacket and core are chemically bonded. Speer proudly claims this occurs one molecule at a time, and the result is a tremendous reduction in jacket/core separation.
