Speer applies this plating using an electrochemical process which protects the bullet from separation which could cause superficial, ineffectual damage to a threat. The G2 revision enhances this design by filling the hollow-point cavity with a polymer material that prevents clogging from barriers and heavy clothing. This ensures the bullet expands reliably during entry into a target even after passing through auto-glass, thick denim, and pressed wood; this wide mushrooming prevents over-penetration and contributes greater energy to vital zones in order to yield a quick stop. Speer ammunition is widely recognized in the United States for being a top supplier to police organizations for over seven decades.
