Speer is part of the ATK family of ammo brands. Federal, CCI, Blazer, Speer, they're all owned by ATK, which is the largest ammo maker in the world. Most of their ammo is actually produced right here in the US, out in Minnesota. And all the components are made in the same factory.
Speer is kind of the self-defense arm of ATK, and they make stuff like Speer Gold Dot, or other self-defense ammo that you've heard of. But today we're gonna talk about Speer Lawman, which is actually a full metal jacket practice ammo.
Lawman is under the Speer brand because it's loaded a little hotter than normal practice ammo, and it's intended to duplicate the kind of recoil impulse you get from shooting defensive ammo. So you can practice with the less expensive Lawman, and carry the hollow points, and the point of impact and recoil should be about the same.
We shot a couple of boxes of Speer Lawman in .40 Smith & Wesson with a 165 grain bullet. cases are reloadable brass with a noncorrosive primer, and the bullets are lead core with a copper full metal jacket. We did notice the increased recoil with this ammo, especially when shooting with Smith & Wesson M&P Compacts. If you're used to shooting lighter practice loads in your carry gun, you might want to run a few boxes of Lawman so you can get used to controlling the recoil on your defensive loads.
We ran the Lawman ammo through a few full size handguns, and definitely noticed the increased recoil, but not quite as much as with a short barreled pistol. Reliability was great and we didn't have any feeding issues in any of the test guns. Accuracy was also really good and we got a kind of funny looking group spanning about 2.5 inches from the bench at 15 yards.
If you want to train with full power loads, but don't want to pay for premium defense ammo, then pick up a couple of boxes of Speer Lawman.
My Expert Review
Review by Sean
I shoot a Ruger SR40C NOTE THE C which means a 3.5 inch pipe. I find this ammo and the 155 almost the same. The neg. first: the case had a bit of corrosion on most of the rounds. This is not a clean burning ammo for certain PLAN ON cleaning. AND not a good match for my weapon, but the that is not the rounds fault.
I will stress and as Ruger stresses OIL KILLS GUNS; So if your one of those who has oil (which holds dirt and particles on moving parts watch out).
This will not shoot straight in a short bbl but does fine in a 4.5" and WOW So here is the GOOD:
No FTF, FTE, or Light Fire.
In a 4.5" bbl it is a great round and packs a punch and does what it say it will. Worth every cent.
Not one bad round after 400 of 155/165's.
I have these 3-15 down in my mag at home to STOP, which they will.
BUT THEY ARE DIRTY AND WILL NEVER USE THEM AGAIN FOR NORMAL RANGE USE.
I still will keep some as nothing has 480 lbs of punch, and that's what counts.

Great price and Quality
Review by Bob
Sig P229. Lucky Gunner is a great place to buy ammo. Always a good selection, competitive pricing, and fast delivery. First time using these rounds. The rounds chamber without any problems and recoil to match my defense round. Highly recommend for the range.

Speer Lawman 40 S&W
Review by Jimbo
I shoot a S&W C.O.R.E 40 cal. 5" I think it was love at the first shot, one word "FLAWLESS " others may vary but so far i have had no issues in feeding or accuracy .. Price is completive and in some cases better than most. I like the staff at Lucky Gunner they actually care about how they can improve doing business each and every way with their customers. My purchase experience was excellent and it made me feel truly like a Lucky Gunner. Jimbo

Just Plain Good Stuff
Review by Bulls-i
I have literally shot tens of thousands of rounds of this ammo from LAWMAN and never had a single problem - ever.
If this ammo jams in your gun - buy a new gun!
The same applies for Federal American Eagle though - both are top notch (and I think made by the same parent company?)
