- Q & A
The 9mm has been around for more than a century, and if anything it has become even more popular with the passage of time. Fans of the 9mm enjoy its manageable recoil, stopping power, and affordable price, and the fact that guns chambered in this caliber typically hold a larger number of rounds is yet another deciding factor for many shooters. In fact, the U.S. Army issues 9mms to its soldiers in the form of the Beretta M9 due to all those factors. The 9mm is a capable round, and if you use yours for self-defense, you need to keep it loaded with the right rounds.
These 9mm rounds weigh in at 147 grain, making them moderately heavy for the cartridge size. These rounds are light enough to fly towards targets at good speeds, but they’re still heavy enough to impact targets with a solid strike. These are Jacketed Hollow Point, or JHP, rounds and begin to expand at the moment of impact, mushrooming to create a large, devastating wound cavity. Each of these rounds produces a muzzle velocity of 990 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 320 foot-pounds. These are Speer Gold Dot rounds and are specifically meant for self-defense use.
When you order this single box of Speer ammunition you get 50 defense rounds. Law enforcement officers have been counting on Speer Gold Dot rounds for years, and you can be sure that if these rounds meet the strict needs of the law enforcement community they’re certainly going to fulfill yours. These are brand new production, brass-cased rounds with boxer primer, so you can police your spent brass, reload it, and get even more trigger time. Speer has been manufacturing ammunition at their factory in Lewiston, Idaho, for decades, and all ammunition must undergo rigorous testing and strict quality control measures. Order now and make sure you’re prepared for the worst case scenario.
