|When you need the best, you need Speer Gold Dot! Trusted by Law Enforcement and designed to meet the most stringent law enforcement standards. The superior performance is attained by their Uni-Cor technology, which binds the lead core to the jacket, virtually eliminating bullet failures, and drastically improving accuracy. Creating the hollow point after the jacket is built produces maximum expansion and weight retention, while also improving bullet feeding. Specifically designed for personal protection, Gold Dot bullets. Load Data|
Use published jacketed bullet load data when loading. A starting powder charge between the listed minimum and maximum load found in various published reloading manuals is recommended.
Speer Bullets is owned by Visa Outdoor, a global designer and manufacturer of consumer products for outdoor sports. Besides Speer, Vista Outdoor also is the parent company of other reloading brands such as Alliant Powder, Savage Arms, Bushnell, Blazer, CCI, Hoppes, Outers, RCBS Tasco, Uncle Mikes, Weaver and other brands.
Speer has been in business since 1943, when Vernon Speer started building bullets when reloaders couldn’t get components they needed from the ammunition companies. Speer also built the first mass produced jacketed handgun bullets for law enforcement and hunting in the 1960’s. Over 50 years later, Speer is still based out of Lewiston, Idaho. Speer is also one of the first manufactures to achieve the ISO 9001 certification.
