Vernon Speer has been an innovator since the beginning; when he was just 21, he invented a new airplane engine, and in order to prove it would work he installed it and took the plane up. Of course the engine worked, and Vernon took that same hard-charging attitude into the ammunition world when he founded Speer Bullets in 1944. They started small, renting space in the basement of a grocery store, but it wasn’t long before a full-size factory was obviously needed. Property adjacent to the Snake River in Lewiston, Idaho, was purchased, and to this day Speer’s ammunition is manufactured in that same factory.
One of Speer’s greatest creations is Gold Dot ammunition. These particular rounds are for your .45 ACP and weigh in at a solid 230 grain. Because they’re heavy they’re capable of delivering massive stopping power, but there’s more to them than that. These are Hollow Point rounds and begin to expand at the moment of impact. They deliver rapid energy transfer and as they mushroom, they begin to slow down; their expansion creates a devastating wound channel and their slowing speed prevents over-penetration, protecting innocent bystanders. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 890 feet per second and muzzle energy of 404 foot-pounds. This is excellent self-defense ammunition.
There are 20 defense rounds in this box of ammunition from Speer. Not only are Gold Dots fantastic defense rounds, they’re trusted by a vast number of law enforcement officers. When professionals in the field of law enforcement rely on a particular ammunition, you know there must be good reasons. These rounds deliver reliable performance, consistent cycling, and enormous knockdown power, all things you want in a defense round. When it comes to your own personal safety, and the safety of those you love, you can’t trust just any ammunition. Load your gun with the ammunition trusted by members of law enforcement; load your gun with Speer Gold Dots.
