Latest Round of International Contract Highlights Speer’s Commitment to Excellence

LEWISTON, Idaho – February 14, 2017 – The French National Police recently awarded Speer with a long-term contract for its 124-grain, 9mm Luger Gold Dot Duty ammunition. This contract reflects the company’s industry-leading technologies and longstanding commitment to excellence.

“The French National Police are one of the world’s finest law enforcement agencies. We’re proud to provide Speer Gold Dot for their duty ammunition needs,” said Jason Nash, Senior Director of Marketing, “and are honored they selected us for this important contract.”

Gold Dot was the first handgun ammunition loaded with true, bonded-core bullets. Speer’s exclusive Uni-Cor construction process bonds the jacket to the alloyed lead core one atom at a time. This process virtually eliminates core-jacket separation while guaranteeing uniform jacket thickness for superior accuracy.

Each Gold Dot hollow-point cavity is tuned by caliber and bullet weight to ensure optimum expansion and penetration. Additional Gold Dot features include ultra-reliable CCI primers, plus high-powered, clean-burning propellants and nickel-plated brass cases for smooth function and extreme durability.

Headquartered in Lewiston, Idaho, Speer has a long-standing reputation for making the world’s finest bullets and in 1996 became one of the first U.S. ammunition manufacturers to achieve ISO 9001 certification for quality. The company manufactures a variety of bullets and cartridges for law enforcement, reloading and sporting applications.

Speer LE Raises The Bar For Duty Handgun Ammunition With Gold Dot G2

LEWISTON, Idaho – August 17, 2016 – For years, Speer Gold Dot has been the pinnacle of duty handgun ammunition performance. New Gold Dot G2 builds on this reputation with a next-generation duty bullet design. Shipments of this new product are now being delivered to Law Enforcement dealers.

Instead of a large cavity in the nose, Gold Dot G2 has only a shallow dish filled with a high-performance elastomer. On impact, the material is forced into specially designed fissures to start the expansion process, as opposed to conventional bullet designs, which need target media to enter the hollow point and create expansion forces. The result is extremely uniform expansion, and more consistent penetration across barrier types, gun platforms and barrel lengths.

Features & Benefits
• Passes FBI Protocol Testing
• Nose features a shallow, dish-shaped depression filled with elastomer
• Expansion begins on impact, when elastomer is forced into engineered internal fissures
• Extremely uniform upset and penetration
• Exclusive Gold Dot construction virtually eliminates core/jacket separation
• Structural-plated, pressure-formed core
• Excellent reliability and feeding in duty firearms

Part No. / Description / MSRP
54226 / 9mm Luger 147-grain Gold Dot G2 / $18.95
53999 / 40 S&W 180-grain Gold Dot G2 / $20.95
