We test fired five rounds of .25 Auto (ACP) Speer 35 gr Gold Dot into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Beretta 950BS Jetfire pistol at a distance of 10 feet. A four-layer barrier of heavy fabric was placed in front of the gelatin to simulate clothing.
The complete data for this load from our test can be found on the chart below. The photo slider displays the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel. Pictured below is a high speed video that shows the bullet entering the gel at approximately 10,000 frames per second. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other .25 Auto (ACP) loads.

I'll go with the GOLD DOT for My 25 ACP 35. gr.
I carry a 25. ACP as a DEEP Cover Handgun. I have a Baby Browning 25. and it's so small and light I really can't tell I'm carrying it. This Round does the Job, pull the Trigger and it's bang. It fires everytime and that's just what I want in a Small Cal. Round !!!
Expensive, and in the lower tier of accuracy & performance.
Speer Gold Dot is reliable, fairly clean burning ammo, but it routinely shoots the largest groups, and costs the most out of other ammo in its class. Quality is very good, accuracy is adequate, expansion is good/average, cost is above average, reliability is very good, but it is far from the best on can get. Ammo like Sellier, & Privi (PPU) are starting to eclipse brands like CCI for less money. Guns fired from: Beretta 21A, Beretta 950, Browning Baby Browning, Galesi, Colt 1903 Vest Pocket Hammerless, Jennings Raven, FN Vest Pocket, Taurus pocket pistol, Phoenix Arms, Seecamp, Bauer, and a few Italian & Spanish mystery pistols.
Seems anything in 25 cal is hard to come by these days but, not only did LG have the caliber, they had Speer Gold Dot JHP. I am an NRA instructor, I as many realize some places I visit presents a need for a backup Gun. My 25 is great for that as it is the most concealable Gun I have. Knowing I have Gold Dots in it gives me a warm fuzzy feeling, I trust Speer with my life every day as do many police and military representatives. I'm glad LG came through for me!
