Speer 40 Grain Hollow Point Ammo Details

Bulk 22 Mag Speer 40 Grain Gold Dot Hollow Point Ammo – 500 Rounds



Perfect for the shooter who wants to stock up, this package contains 00 rounds of Speer Gold Dot .22 Magnum ammunition. Each round is loaded with a 40 grain bonded hollow point projectile. Speer Gold Dot was the first high-performance ammo to use true, bonded core projectiles. Engineered using a proprietary Uni-Cor bonding process, the jacket is bonded to the core one molecule at a time. This process virtually eliminates core/jacket separation for excellent weight retention and effective terminal performance.



The hollow point cavities in Speer Gold Dot loads are formed in two separate stages. The first stage is designed to determine how far the bullet will expand. The second stage controls the rate of expansion. This patented two-step process provides detailed and exacting control over the performance of each round. Each bullet is specifically tuned for optimal terminal expansion and penetration. Each bullet is then finished to produce a smooth profile to facilitate reliable feeding and function in today’s modern semi-automatic weapons.



Speer uses only the highest quality components in these factory fresh rounds, including sure-fire CCI primers, low-flash propellants, and high-quality nickel-plated brass casings. Leaving the muzzle at a velocity of 1050 feet per second with 99 foot pounds of muzzle energy, these Speer Gold Dot rounds are great for self-defense, home protection, and concealed carry.


Ballistic Gel Testing

In hopes of giving ourselves and our customers a better idea how this 22 Magnum (WMR) self-defense ammo would perform if called upon in a self-defense scenario, we tested dozens of the best selling hollow points on the market.

We fired five rounds of this Speer 22 Magnum (WMR) ammo through a cloth barrier into Clear Ballistics calibrated synthetic gelatin and recorded the results. For these tests, we used a Ruger LCR with a 1.87-inch barrel. In the photos, graphics and video on this page, you can see specifically how the Speer ammo performed and how it sticks up with the rest of the 22 Magnum (WMR) ammo we have tested so far.
