Speer offers these 124-grain +P rounds in a 50 round box also if you need to fill up more than a couple magazines for defensive purposes. These 20 rounds boxes are ideal if you are already familiar with the quality Gold Dot offers and only require a small number of rounds to fill up your defensive magazine loadout.
This higher-pressure (+P) variant of the standard 124 grain Gold Dot 9mm cartridge packs a harder punch. With more power comes higher chamber pressures, faster muzzle velocity, higher muzzle energy, and a little snappier recoil. This +P round will punch through more barriers before stopping, and it will also impact with more force on a hardened target. Gold Dot, a highly regarded line made by Speer, is considered to be among the top choices for serious defensive ammunition. Law enforcement professionals and Police departments across the country and around the world use Speer Gold Dot in their weapons, as it is a proven reliable and dependable choice. Gold Dot has an extensive track record of performing the way it was designed to, which can be attributed to Speer's patented two-stage construction process
- Pre-fluting of the core: This helps define the expanded diameter and maintain weight during and after expansion
- Hollow-point creation: The second stage completes the concave tip of the bullet, and finalizes the rate of expansion of the hollow point
The propellents within Gold Dot rounds are clean-burning, and are measured to send bullets downrange with optimal chamber pressures and velocity, from magazine to magazine. The primers in these advanced defensive rounds are from CCI, who makes a non-corrosive and consistent primer for high-quality ammunition products, and al these great features are contained within low-friction nickel-plated brass casings.
