This is 45 ACP Speer Law Enforcement Grade Gold Dot 230gr. Hollow Point Ammo. Speer Gold Dot Ammunition is designed to deliver the high performance today’s law enforcement officers demand. Each Gold Dot bullet is individually engineered to provide shot-to-shot uniformity and ensure optimum wounding when fired through a variety of barriers. The result is a cartridge that provides officers the ultimate defense in lethal force confrontations. Jacket/core separations are the main cause of bullet failure and a real problem for traditional lead-core, jacketed hollow point bullets. Most bullets perform adequately in soft tissue, but fragment or expand prematurely when obstructed by bone, heavy clothing or any number of other potential real life shooting barriers. Why? Because conventional bullets are made by forcing a lead core into a jacket creating a two-piece bullet design. Gold Dot was the first handgun ammunition to be loaded with high-performance bonded core bullets. SPEER’S superior Uni-Cor process bonds the jacket to the core one molecule at a time, virtually eliminating core jacket separations. That’s why SPEER Gold Dot is the #1 choice for Law Enforcement Professionals. This is current production ammunition, packed in 50rd. boxes.

    Feeds reliably in my Sig ultra compact 1911. Great round for the money. Nice to see a good hollow point boxed in bunches of 50 for the price you would pay for half the round count. I will continue to buy Speer gold dots for all of my calibres.

    My ammo of choice for .45 ACP. Penetrates just fine and expands reliably. Really, you don't need spectacular expansion for the round to be effective. Using +P in a .45ACP is a waste of money and just causes premature wear on the pistol. Remember...a 9MM MAY expand, a .45 ACP will NEVER shrink ;-)

    Like the last review said these aren't quite as impressive as say an HST or the T-series but they are still reliable performers. I would have no problem using them but make sure they run in your pistol, I have seen several complaints about feeding problems in some 1911 pattern pistols although they seem to work fine in mine.

    They don't expand as much as others but they expand reliably. They don't penetrate as much as others but they penetrate well. They are as reliable as just about any.

    These are great... Just bought them from a local shop today for $32 per 50. Looks like I got a good deal...
