Speer’s Gold Dot ammunition line is manufactured to meet the exacting standards of law enforcement officers who know their lives could depend on their ammunition. The lead-core bullets are bonded to their copper jackets via Speer’s proprietary Uni-Cor bonding process. This bonding promotes weight retention, helping the bullet penetrate deeper without losing weight. The jacket is engraved with fault lines that guide expansion after impact, so you don’t sacrifice any of the power you expect from a soft point bullet.
The .308 cartridge is the most popular short action big game hunting round on Earth.
