Speer was founded in 1944 by Vernon Speer. During World War I Vernon served in the U.S. Navy, and when he was just 21 he created a new kind of airplane engine. The only way to find out of it worked was to use it, so Vernon simply installed it in a biplane, climbed in, and took it aloft. The engine worked, and that was only the beginning of Vernon’s innovation. Years later when he started Speer he got the company going by renting space in the corner of the basement of a grocery store, but it didn’t take long for the company to outgrow the space. Vernon found property along the Snake River and established a factory, which remains operational in that location to this day. Speer has built a respected name for itself in the ammunition industry, and one of the ways it’s done that is with Speer Gold Dot ammunition.
These Speer Gold Dot rounds are made for your 9mm. At 124 grain they’re pretty lightweight rounds, so they’ll fly down-range at high speeds while still retaining enough weight to pack a solid punch on impact. These are Jacketed Hollow Points, so they deliver rapid energy transfer and begin controlled expansion on impact. Because the jackets control expansion there is greater penetration than standard HPs can manage, and that means a deeper, more devastating wound track. Each of these rounds has a muzzle velocity of 1150 feet per second and muzzle energy of 364 foot-pounds. This ammunition is meant for self-defense.
There are 50 defense rounds in this single box of ammunition. These are Speer Gold Dot rounds which are favored and trusted by countless members of law enforcement.
