We wanted to know exactly what happens to a self-defense handgun bullet on impact, so following FBI protocols, we fired five rounds of Speer 124 Gold Dot Short Barrel +P from 10 feet, through four layers of cloth (to simulate clothing), into synthetic ballistic gelatin. The photos below show the bullets recovered from the gelatin after being fired from a Smith & Wesson M&P9C pistol. There’s also a high speed video that shows the bullet impacting the gelatin block.
All the data we gathered pertaining to expansion and penetration of this load can be found in the chart below, and the diagrams at the bottom of the page show how it compares to other 9mm Luger (9x19) self-defense loads from our tests.
In addition to the 9mm Luger (9x19) Speer 124 Gold Dot Short Barrel +P, we tested over 100 other self-defense loads, so check out Lucky Gunner Labs for the full story.

Gold Dot is a great Law Enforcement round
Review by Alec Trebeck
This round is carried by cops around the world. It has a great reputation for passing thru barriers such as windshields and car doors. It is a bonded round but the drawback for civilians is the core is a harder and expansion is not as great. This round saved my life and when fired from a Glock 26. Instantaneous results due to great shot placement. Civilian shooters should consider the HST 124 Grain as it expands reliably to a much larger mushroom.

You can't go wrong with Speer Gold Dot
Review by Houdini
Great ammo for carry gun, I trust this ammo with my life. It always fires and goes where I want it too. If the +P short barrel is unavailable I load with Gold Dot LE 124gr JHP, this ammo works great too.
