Gold dot 40 Smith and Wesson ammo is the choice of a lot of law enforcement and the company has the pedigree to back it up!
Speer was founded in 1943 by Vernon Speer who got the company started to fulfill the needs of reloaders. At the time there was a serious shortage of supplies thanks to the metal use of World War II, and what was hitting the market was poor quality. Vernon started producing well-made bullets, eventually expanding to produce all manner of cartridges, and today Speer is respected for their quality rounds. The company has had many accomplishments along the way including becoming one of the first U.S. companies to achieve ISO 9001 certification in 1996. Speer has more than 70 years of experience manufacturing ammunition, and the proof is in every reliable “bang.”
These particular Speer rounds are for your .40 S&W. At 165 grain these are considered moderately heavy rounds, making them heavy enough to make a significant impact while still being light enough to travel at higher speeds. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, or JHP, rounds, and begin to expand immediately upon impact. The jackets control expansion, allowing for greater penetration and a deeper, more devastating wound cavity. Each of these rounds leaves the barrel of your gun at a muzzle velocity of 1150 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 420 foot-pounds. This ammunition is designed for self-defense.
When you place your order for this single box of Speer ammunition you get 1000 defense rounds. If that seems like a large number of defense rounds, it really isn’t. Defense rounds create more recoil and muzzle rise than standard target rounds, meaning it takes trigger time using these specific rounds to ensure accurate shot placement, especially in the case of follow-up shots. Ordering a case of ammunition such as this gives you the ability to practice at length, which is a wise idea considering your life may someday depend on it. Speer manufactures ammunition at their factory in Lewiston, Idaho. Order now to begin training to defend yourself and those you love.
