A Gold Dot cartridge’s exceptional suitability for personal protection lies in its bullet. This round’s 40 grain punisher has a bonded jacket and alloyed lead core, so it will stay almost entirely in one piece even if it has to tackle an intermediate barrier or plow into soft tissue at full muzzle velocity. This bullet’s nose cavity is also formed in two stages, either one presetting how fast or how wide it can expand.
So potent a bullet wouldn’t be of much use without the help of premium components. This round’s brass case is plated with corrosion resistant nickel, which additionally decreases friction to help prevent a feeding jam or failure to extract. Speer loads propellant to deliver optimal chamber pressures, as well as a non-corrosive primer by CCI to see to reliable ignition.
