Speer 115 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

Speer Gold Dot ammunition is nearly unrivaled in measures of performance and represents the product of constant research, innovation, and technological revision. These 9mm Luger rounds are constructed using reloadable brass casings which are nickel-coated for smooth feeding and extraction as well as for resistance to the elements; casings are fitted with non-corrosive Boxer primers from CCI (sister company to Speer) which carry the best reputation for reliable ignition.

Gold Dot ammunition is legendary in the law enforcement community due to its unique jacketed hollow-point (JHP) design. The projectile's hollow cavity is integrated into the copper jacket at the tip with precisely placed openings and serrations. This arrangement results in dependable expansion with a controlled opening rate which creates a wide wound cavity without spoiling deep penetration.

The Gold Dot projectile is formed using Speer's Uni-Cor process which creates a strong bond between the copper jacket and lead core that prevents momentum-sapping separation. These cartridges utilize flash suppressant in their powder mixture in order to preserve night-vision and enable quicker follow-up shots. The 115 grain weight combined with a standard pressure charge offers light-recoil and a relatively flat trajectory.
