Everyone knows it is important to practice with the self-defense ammo you carry in your 9mm, but most people aren't willing to fire hundreds or thousands of rounds of expensive self-defense ammo at a paper target. Speer understands this problem, and as a result they created the Speer Lawman brand. This brand is designed to mimic the ballistics of their popular Speer Gold Dot self-defense loads but with a TMJ projectile instead of a hollow point. This provides you with an affordable way to practice with ammo that is very similar to your self-defense ammo.

Each round in this case of 1000 features a heavy 147 grain TMJ projectile loaded into a reloadable, non-corrosive, and boxer-primed brass case.

If you use Speer Gold Dot for self-defense, then it should be a no-brainer for you to pick up a case of this ammo for the next time you head out to the range. And even if you don't use Speer Gold Dot, then you should still grab this case and see why shooters trust Speer to always produce the highest quality ammunition!

A: Hello Mark! The 115 grain bullet does typically have less recoil. A heavier bullet would theoretically be accurate over longer distances, but those wouldn't be distances people conventionally fire 9mm handguns across. One reason why you'd want a 147 grain bullet is for self-defense. The heavier bullet penetrates a little deeper, which helps it inflict a more injurious wound channel. You wouldn't use 147 grain FMJ (orTMJ) ammo for self-defense, but you would want to use it for training so you could get closer performance to your preferred 147 grain JHP self-defense loads. Another reason why you'd want to use a 147 grain bullet is for its subsonic muzzle velocity. Because the heavier bullet doesn't accelerate faster than the speed of sound, it doesn't emit as sharp a report during ignition. That equals quieter performance which won't deafen you as badly if you ever have to fire indoors – as well as better performance out of a suppressor.

A: Hello Easton, Speer lists the muzzle velocity of this round at 985 fps which would make that round subsonic.
