Gold Dot Reliability for Your Personal Protection Needs
TRUST. It's something that's earned. Gold Dot® high performance handgun ammunition has earned the trust of thousands of law enforcement officers across America and around the world.
You, too, can count on Gold Dot's superb performance, accuracy, and reliability with our Personal Protection line. Whether you need the best for concealed carry, home protection, or target shooting, Gold Dot delivers—round after round.
Gold Dot was the first high-performance handgun ammunition to be loaded with true, bonded-core bullets. Using our exclusive Uni-Cor® process, we bond the jacket to the core one molecule at a time. This virtually eliminates core-jacket separation, the leading cause of handgun bullet failures and often inherent in the design of conventional bullets. Our bonding happens at the beginning of the bullet making process, exactly where it should.
We form the hollow point cavity in two stages. The first establishes how far the bullet can expand; the second controls the rate of expansion. This patented* two-step cavity formation gives Speer® engineers incredible control in the design process. Each bullet caliber and weight is tuned for optimum expansion and penetration. The bullet is finished to provide a smooth profile for reliable feeding in semi-auto handguns.quality Gold Dot
Gold Dot is assembled in quality brass cases, nickelplated for smooth feeding and protection from corrosion. For sure-fire ignition under real-world conditions, we use famous CCI® primers. Then we load select, low-flash propellants matched to the performance needs of each cartridge. We put a lot of thought into each Gold Dot cartridge so you no longer have to.
