Concealed carry holders and police officers around the country count on Speer Gold Dot ammunition to help them stay safe in a self-defense emergency. These 9mm Luger +P cartridges use a high-pressure load that trades increased recoil for enhanced expansion and penetration. This is a worthwhile tradeoff for shooters who find the kick of standard pressure 9mm Parabellum ammo easy to handle.
Each cartridge in this case of 500 fires a 124 grain bonded hollow point bullet at a muzzle velocity of 1,220 feet per second. This combination of a medium weight bullet fired at a high velocity ensures rapid unfolding of the petals and a relatively low risk of over penetration. Speer Gold Dot bullets are molecularly bonded to eliminate the risk of the core and jacket separating; each bullet variant is specially optimized for power level and weight to obtain the best performance for the user.
Speer ammunition is loaded in Lewiston, Idaho using non-corrosive Boxer primers and nickel plated brass cases. Nickel plating isn't just for show; it enhances the durability of the casing and helps ensure reliable performance even after the round has been carried every day for a long period of time.
