Speer is part of the ATK family of ammo brands, which also includes CCI, Blazer, and Federal. Speer is usually reserved for self defense hollow point ammo. But today, we're going to take a look at Speer Lawman which is actually a full metal jacket round. Lawman ammo falls under the Speer brand because of its intended use as self defense training ammo. Speer Lawman loads are meant to match the velocity and recoil impulse of hotter self defense ammo like Speer Gold Dot.
So you can practice with the Lawman ammo and load up the hollow points for self defense use. And then, count on the recoil and point of impact to be very similar. For this review, we tried a few rounds of Speer Lawman in 45 ACP. The 230 grain bullet is seeded in a reloadable brass case with a non-corrosive primer. Lawman bullets are lead core total metal jacket which means that the copper jacket completely encases the bullet leaving no exposed lead.
This makes the Lawman ideal for use in indoor ranges where you want to keep lead levels to a minimum for health reasons. We've tested Lawman ammo in a few other calibers and immediately notice the increase recoil. But with this load, it was barely noticeable. I don't doubt that it matches the Gold Dot defensive loads, but the recoil seems relatively moderate in all six of our test guns.
Reliability was not an issue, and we didn't have any feeding or ignition failure during the test. We used our full-size Springfield Armory XDM to do an accuracy test from the bench at 15 yards. Results were pretty respectable with a nice group right in the center with one low flyer. If you want to train with full power loads but don't want to pay the price for premium defensive ammo, then pick up a few boxes of Speer Lawman.

Nice range ammo
Got this ammo to use in a Glock 30, 1911 and a P220. It wasn't the cheapest nor was it going to break the bank. It is consistent. So far used about half of the case and haven't had any issues. Perfectly fine for the range. I don't reload but like the product out of the box.
Good For Intended Purpose
I bought this to break in my Colt Commander. I've had several FTL and stovepipes but I really think that's due to my mags and wearing the pistol in. Fairly accurate for discount factory loads, but geez its dirty. After a cleaning and inspection prior to initial firing, I don't clean my 1911s until they've cycled 500 rounds. The next cleaning is after another 500. I do lubricate after every 100. At the 300 round mark I had no FTL, FTF, or FTE. But I had a royal mess to clean. Slicked the top end up though. So for break in its great if you do it my way. Okay for practice and training, but if you're fastidious about clean pieces, recommend you try something else.
