I carried Gold Dot as my duty ammo my last 4 years as a deputy sheriff. Now that I'm retired, why would I change? It is a great performing round that is accurate and effective. It is great as a duty ammo, it is great for self defense.

Our nation's largest police force carries this round twelve months out of the year with more than excellent results. This website is a great price and is sold in a semi-rare fifty round count. Can't complain about that.

This ammo is the issued duty ammo for a number of LE agencies at both the federal and state level. My federal agency has approved it for use, as has my wife's state agency. Trust me, if our gun strokes chose it for duty ammo, its where you want to be. I bought a few boxes to stock up my personal gun, and proceeded to run several magazines worth through two separate Glock 43's without a hitch. You'll definitely feel the +P in a small frame handgun like that, but Speer LE gold dot is the only ammo I'll shoot.

Unsure what other reviewer was talking about but they probably know nothing about ammo. This has been a street (eg: police) proven round for many years. I have found that it feeds flawlessly with a total of over 200 rounds rapid fire and another 200 plus rounds general shooting with zero FTF or FTE (priority one). From the hundreds of tests online to coroner reports, this ammo performs as it should and does what it was designed to do. No handgun round is as effective as a long gun but Gold Dots are a top performing handgun round that has been around for many years and used by numerous police agencies for a reason. The 9mm was designed around a 124gr bullet and I've found this round shoot POI. Won't trust my life with anything else.

GIVE ME A BREAK....EVEN FEDERAL IS BETTER THAN THIS ODD HI TECH "STUFF"... YUP ITS BONDED, + P, AND DOESN'T COMPRESS WHILE EXPANDING/OPENING.....BUT PLUGS UP, PEELS LIKE A BANANA AND REALLY DOESN'T EXPAND MUCH !!! WIN, REM, CORBON AND FED ARE BETTER!

Phenomenal duty round. I have tested this round out of a Springfield XDM 9mm. Expansion was .75 with 4-ply denim and ballistic gel. Penetration was 15.9 in. It was clocked at 1248 sec (a little faster than advertised) due to 4.5 in barrel. NYPD has had 595 successful one stop shots (center mass hits) with this being their duty round. Thanks ATG!!

The best 124gr+p bonded ammo you can buy. This is a flat out impressive round, 1220fps/410lbs of kinetic energy (muzzle) and it is accurate. I put these up against Ranger Bonded 124gr+p in ballistic testing and they were the clear winner. Expansion and penetration were both great, this stuff goes quick so get it while you can.

This is the best all around self defense load in 9mm. The 124 + gold dot is an excellent example of the best of speed and weight. Expands well . Penetrates deep and is a bonded bullet. NYPD use this round and for a good reason IT WORKS. You could spend more money but you're not going to get a better all around self defense ammo!! Hard to find get it while you can.

I believe this to be one of the very best 9mm JHPs on the market at this time. Expands very well for a bonded round and regularly out-penetrates its competition when I have tested it. It works great out of short or service length barrels and expands after passing through the dreaded 4-layers of denim(and just about anything else I've tried including a winter coat over a thick sweatshirt). You get energy and speed but don't need to sacrifice penetration.

feeds well, consistent, extremely accurate and from the reading ive done it apparently has very good terminal performance as well, have put it through 3 glocks, a sig, and a beretta with no problems at all very accurate out of all of them

Good ammo. This is the cheapest I've been able to find it. Reliable and has a strong punch to it. It also mushrooms very nicely.

I purchased a few boxes of this fine ammo from Ammo To Go and I received solid and speedy service from them. There is no question in my mind, when buying ammo online this is the only place to shop!
