When you absolutely need the best stopping power out of a mainstream round and a mainstream firearm, this is the Speer Gold Dot .44 Magnum round that is purpose built for threat stoppage and has the performance documentation to prove it. Not only does it have the credentials, it continues to work hard to get better. Speer isn’t resting on their laurels and benefitting from past success. Clearly by any metric, the Speer Gold Dot is a successful projectile line and one of the best performing bullets in a duty or personal defense setting that has ever been available to the shooting public. The 200 grain projectile offers more than enough penetration, speed, mass and potency to stop most credible threats. There may be a slight risk of overpenetration in close quarters combat in your home or apartment, but if that is a concern, the Gold Dot isn’t the problem, the massive cartridge is. This is a cartridge that offers perks for the normal shooter, and while it does come at a premium cost, why would you settle for anything less than the best for the protection of your life should you need your weapon?
The performance of the round is complete in its balance and potency, given the already impressive ballistics of the .44 Magnum and then adding the impressive penetration, expansion and uniformity/consistency of the Gold Dot projectile.
