AN INDUSTRY FIRST
Gold Dot was the first handgun ammunition 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. Our bonding happens at the beginning of the bullet making process, exactly when it should.
BUILT TO PERFORM
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 then finished to provide a smooth profile for reliable feeding in semi-automatic handguns.
Gold Dot is loaded into quality nickel-plated brass cases for smooth feeding and corrosion protection. 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.
