Speer Gold Dot Duty AmmunitionHere is how Speer describes the Speer LE Gold Dot Duty Ammunition 53614 115gr 9mm Hollow Point:

“Designed to deliver the high performance today’s law enforcement officers demand. Each Speer® LE Gold Dot® bullet is individually engineered to provide shot-to-shot uniformity and ensure optimum performance when fired through a variety of barriers. The result is a cartridge that provides officers the ultimate defense in lethal force confrontations.”

In this test we are reviewing the standard 115 grain GDHP version, not the +P (53617) or +P+ (53612)

We are fortunate to have an arrangement with Ammunition Supply Company where they provide ammunition for all of our reviews. In return, we share our videos and reviews with ASC for them to use on their website. For this review we shot Winchester 9mm FMJ 115 Grain “white box” and Speer LE Gold Dot Duty Ammunition 53614 115gr 9mm Hollow Point.

Huge thanks to Ammunition Supply Company, who kicked in nearly 100 rounds of 115 grain ammo for this test.
