Speer 90 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

This 380 ACP cartridge from Speer’s Law Enforcement ammo line showcases the lethal performance of the Gold Dot projectile. The Gold Dot’s hollow point is meticulously formed over the course of a two stage process, which determines the exact width it can expand to and the rate at which it does so. The Gold Dot is further able to penetrate deeply as it expands, even after having broken through thick fabric or plywood, as its electrochemically bonded jacket is nigh indivisible from its core. The evenly layered jacket is furthermore impressively concentric, which along with its precision formed meplat grants the Gold Dot unerring precision in flight.

This round will feed like a dream in your semi-automatic weapon, as its nose profile is designed exactly for that purpose and its brass casing is clad in low friction nickel plating. Nickel also guards this round against corrosion, so you can count on your self-defense load to be ready when it’s most needed.
