- Q & A
Your AR-15 is great for more than just slinging lead down-range for the purpose of ventilating paper targets of zombies, although that’s certainly fun, too. Among its many uses is hunting game up to the size of whitetail deer; shooters who prefer semi-autos for hunting have found the AR-15 is a fantastic choice. It’s also used on an increasing basis for home defense. Rifles have the benefit of allowing you to take aim at assailants from concealment; you can get off a shot without exposing yourself as you would most likely be forced to with a pistol. And, of course, they boast greater velocity and energy. If you’re going to take down an attacker, an AR-15 will certainly do some damage.
One must-have if you’re going to use your AR-15 for home defense is a high quality, reliable defense round. These rounds are made by Speer, a company that was founded in 1943 by Vernon Speer, who started with the goal of supplying reloaders with components. His focus at the start was rifle-caliber bullets but he soon began producing jacketed bullets for law enforcement; by the 1960s he was producing the Lawman line, which remains popular for realistic training. Another popular law enforcement line is Gold Dot. Many officers have relied on Gold Dot rounds for years, and it’s easy to see why with their reliable functioning and terminal performance.
These .223 rounds are 64 grain, putting them at the lighter end of medium-weight. They’re light enough to reach high speeds but heavy enough to hit with more force than truly light rounds are capable of delivering. These are Soft Point rounds and begin to expand immediately on impact, mushrooming while slowing down at the same time and producing a massive wound track. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 3000 feet per second and muzzle energy of 1279 foot-pounds. This is premium self-defense ammunition. There are 20 rounds in this box. Speer manufactures these rounds at their longtime factory in Lewiston, Idaho, according to an exacting standard. If you use your AR-15 for self-defense, use the round law enforcement trust.
