Speer 147 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

You’re not carrying a big, uncomfortable chunk of metal everywhere you go because you intend to be ill-prepared for when life attacks. That’s why you need a definitive self-defense cartridge to chamber in it -- something exactly like this 9mm round from Speer’s Gold Dot G2 line of ammunition. Its bullet’s core sports precision engineered fissures that control reliable expansion. Better yet, the G2’s nose cavity contains a special elastomer that gets down into those fissures during penetration to promote even more reliable expansion.

This round’s potent projectile has still got the classic Gold Dot’s signature bonded core. Because its jacket is formed one single molecule at a time, it’s extremely tenacious and doesn’t flake off even while tunneling through sheet metal. It’s intensely accurate for the same reason as well. This cartridge’s new production casing is plated with a shiny layer of nickel, a metal that makes feeding and ejection far smoother in a semi-automatic. Its primer by CCI is top notch, and because it’s non-corrosive it will keep your pistol cleaner as you're dumping a mag.
