Why? Because we make sure that your Gold Dot® ammunition will excel in the stringent handgun ammunition tests developed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for service-class* handgun cartridges. These tests evaluate total penetration, expansion, and retained weight in bare gelatin, and gelatin shielded by common barriers, to find out if the cartridge produces the tactical penetration required. Look at the table below for an example of Gold Dot results. The load is the 38 Special +P Short Barrel® Gold Dot fired from a 2-inch revolver, a real challenge for other bullet types. Those numbers tell you this is an outstanding performer, as are all our Gold Dot products.
