Speer uses a proprietary bonding process on their Gold Dot ammunition that joins the jacket to the lead core, promoting weight retention without compromising on the expansion properties that make hollow point bullets so powerful. Each bullet is scored with “fault lines” that direct the expansion of the bullet so you get consistent performance from your firearm with every shot.
In 2003, Glock commissioned Ernest Durham of CCI/Speer to create a cartridge that could match the performance of the venerable .45 ACP round in a smaller, tougher package. Durham developed the .45 Glock Automatic Pistol: an identical diameter round with a shorter case and a small-pistol primer. .45 G.A.P. excels in compact pistols. This cartridge operates at pressures equivalent to +P .45 ACP rounds. It should NOT be fired from any firearm chambered in .45 ACP. Consult your firearm manufacturer or owner’s manual if you have additional questions.
