When it comes to self-defense, you want a trustworthy round packing serious muscle. You ask your fellow shooters and friends, and maybe you do some research. Everyone claims their defense ammo is the end-all-be-all, so how do you know? Each brand has special features and pro’s and con’s, and it tends to depend on who you ask, and what their particular concerns are when it comes to a self-defense scenario. A large number of law enforcement officers rely on Speer Gold Dot for their defense needs, so if you have a .40 S&W, this ammunition might be just what you need.
Speer Gold Dot has a reputation for superior penetration and ballistic performance. They’ve been dominating the law enforcement field for some time now and are currently considered the #1 duty ammunition on the market. At 180 grain these are fairly heavy rounds, so they’re capable of packing a bigger punch. They’re JHP’s, so they’re capable of rapid energy transfer, begin to expand and decelerate on impact, and their jackets provide increased strength for deeper penetration and decreased lead fouling. They fly from the barrel of your gun with a muzzle velocity of 950 feet per second and reach out and touch your target with a muzzle energy of 361 foot-pounds.
When Vernon Speer founded Speer Bullets, he was interested in producing ammunition with the components and qualities handloaders wanted and were unable to get from the so-called big manufacturers. And although he started with a focus on hunting, he was also the very first to create mass-produced jacketed handgun bullets for law enforcement. Today, Speer manufactures all their products at their plant in Lewiston, Idaho. You get 50 defense rounds when you place your order, so you can keep your handgun loaded and also fire a few rounds to see what they feel like. After all, what better recommendation is there for ammunition than being used and favored by members of the law enforcement community?
