Speer 124 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

This 9mm duty load from Speer offers a potent combination of premium components from which all concealed carriers can benefit. Speer, a sister company under the same umbrella as CCI and Federal, constantly updates their Gold Dot line of ammo in order keep up with the latest personal defense innovations. Each of these cartridges features a 124-grain hollow point round with a copper jacket that has been bonded to its lead core. A wide-mouth cavity and skived jacket make for dependable expansion upon contact while the bonded jacket resists separation which could otherwise prevent the round from reaching vital areas. Penetration is further assisted by the stout +P load of powder which contributes to effective and humane incapacitation of a threat target.

Speer laces the powder with flash suppressant so that firing in low-light won't affect a shooter's ability to make accurate follow-up shots. The 9x19mm bullet and its propellant are contained within a reloadable brass casing which bears a non-corrosive Boxer primer at its base. A slick layer of nickel-plating adorns the cartridge case in order to lower friction, ensure reliable cycling, and fight off metal-eating sweat and moisture. The nickel's shiny look also helps identify the rounds for carry purposes and separate it from your training stock. Buying in bulk with this 500-round pack guarantees a healthy supply for years to come with occasional high-fidelity practice.
