SpeerŪ, complete with a fresh new look, continues to offer the best options for law enforcement, personal protection, handgun hunting and training ammunition. Based on the performance and track record of the legendary Speer Gold DotŪ Ammunition, which continues its dominance of the law enforcement community, Speer has proven its reliability for tough jobs. This reputation has made it the #1 duty ammunition on the market today. To put it simply: it's the best.
Too bad Speer doesn't make this particular load anymore. It was one of the top 2-3 defensive loads available, if not the best. Out of my 3" Model 629 Trail Boss, these rounds are stout. I shot one into gallon jugs of water and it had a nice .70 cal. mushroom out of the fourth jug. Able's shipping was prompt, no problem. -
Took part in a ballistic demo today using genuine auto glass tilted to a 45 degre angle with a 17 degree offset. Eighteen inches away was a 40 pound block of ballistic gelatin. This round was fired out of a 2" S&W model 642. The penetration and bullet weight retention and deformation of the projectile was very impressive. I will be ordering some for personal protection in my S&W 442 and Colt Det Spls. - GREGORY
After trying numerous commercial 38 +P and 357 self-defense loads, this is the only one that I use in my 11 ounce, 357 Mag S&W 340. Muzzle flash is less that even 38 +P, the 1 7/8\" barrel is able to stabilize the bullet at the slower 1,000 fps, recoil is controllable (barely) and accuracy is consistently POA at 21 feet. - G. R.
