Designed by renowned bullet manufacturer Speer, Gold Dot JHPs rank among the most popular ammunition for self-defense and law enforcement in the United States.

This particular loading of the Gold Dot drives a 124 grain bullet from the muzzle at 1150 fps. It offers balanced penetration and power with relatively gentle recoil, characteristics which made it the favored duty load for multiple agencies including the NYPD.

To enable you to get a reasonable amount of testing and practice in with your ammo, Speer offers the Gold Dot in a reasonably priced 50-round box. This ammunition feeds very reliably, so stock up and see for yourself why hundreds of thousands of CCW practitioners and LEOs across America count on Gold Dots for personal protection.

This is a standard pressure loading; while it gives up some velocity to its +P counterpart, it generates less felt recoil and muzzle flash and maintains compatibility with all weapons chambered in 9mm Parabellum. This contributes to an increased effective rate of fire and makes standard pressure Gold Dots a perfect carry load for a pocket-sized firearm such as a Sig P938, Kahr PM9, or Springfield XD-S.

In creating the Gold Dot, Speer identified core-jacket separation as a major reason JHPs failed to perform in their intended role of stopping assailants in lethal force situations. Gold Dots’ chief innovation is a proprietary two-step bonding process that fuses the core to the jacket at a molecular level, minimizing any chance of separation and ensuring that the whole bullet survives to transfer its energy into the target. The bonding process is a highly adaptable procedure, enabling Speer to optimize each Gold Dot loading (caliber and weight) for both expansion and penetration.

Speer is a well-known Idaho-based manufacturer of both bullets and loaded ammo. The company supplies many other ammunition loaders with bullets including its highly popular proprietary Gold Dot line. However, Speer’s own in-house offerings enjoy immense popularity with police officers and citizens due to their proven effectiveness and reasonable price point.

A: Hello Bill! Well, you're in luck. Although we have a somewhat limited selection at the moment courtesy of the ongoing ammo drought, we have got what I consider to be one of the best 9mm rounds for self-defense on the market: https://www.bulkammo.com/bulk-9mm-ammo-9mm124grjhpspeergd-50. This is law enforcement ammo that's also available to the public, with a bonded hollow point bullet that consistently defeats barriers and expands within soft tissue. Your S&W is designed to safely fire 9mm +P ammo, which offers a boosted muzzle velocity so that it can deliver a flatter shot trajectory and more energy throughout penetration. Just take care that overpressure ammo like this will wear out a semi-auto faster. That doesn't matter for self-defense, but you'll want to avoid firing it a lot at the range. If this ammo doesn't suit you, please check in again soon – our invnetory updates frequently, and I can answer any other questions you might have.
