A proven 40 S&W round in the realm of duty officers and federal agents. This Speer Gold Dot load is a specialty round built for use in short barreled pistols for maximum effect of compact carry guns. His load is surprisingly good considering it plays in the same competition as much lesser quality ammunition. The Speer name has been basically synonymous with law enforcement duty contracts; they are perennially the #1 law enforcement contract holder in the United States.
Speer Gold Dot is a consistent top tier performer, here, with a load shot out of a shorter barrel, it still achieves 10.5 inches or more in penetration on average and attains 950 feet per second out of the barrel with about 360 ft. lbs. of energy attached to it. The reliability of the hollow point expansion is incredible with almost unfailing reliability and the uniformity of the actual mushroom deformation is also unheard of. It simple does what it says it will do.
The nickel plated brass is highly feed reliable and also aids the extraction process; while the boxer primer makes these easy to clean casings very easily reloadable. The 180 grain weight and the maximum retained weight on impact thanks to the bonded core bullet means this is a round that will perform when you need it without question.
