Speer Gold Dot Ammunition is loaded with bonded core bullets and is designed for critical defense needs. These rounds are specifically loaded for effective operation in a short-barreled firearm, but will shoot well from all 38 Special +P rated handguns.
Bonding the jacket to the core means the elimination of core-jacket separation and superior weight retention making it more effective than traditional hollow-point bullets in the event that the bullet encounters bone or heavy clothing upon entry. Speer's Gold Dot ammunition is a leader in the law enforcement community for its great performance in the FBI test protocols. It performs especially well in the compound glass angle test that bullets must undergo to pass the FBI's rigid screening requirements.
This ammunition is new production, non-corrosive, in boxer primed, reloadable nickel-plated brass cases.
