45 ACP SPEER GOLD DOT SHORT BARREL 230 GRAIN JHP (200 ROUNDS)Are you looking for the best self-defense ammunition for a subcompact .45 cal handgun? You’re certainly on the right track. Speer designs these 45 ACP cartridges to generate low felt recoil, which will help to reduce the amount of muzzle flip that throws your aim off target with each shot. And while this round’s conventional 820 fps muzzle velocity was recorded with a 4” test barrel, its 230 grain projectile still exhibits reliable penetration and expansion once it clears a barrel as short as 1.9” in length!
The Gold Dot jacketed hollow point projectile is a feat of engineering. Speer utilizes the Uni-Cor electrochemical bonding process to make the JHP’s pressure-formed lead core and concentric copper jacket virtually inseparable from one another as the bullet plunges into soft tissue. The JHP’s hollow point nose cavity is created in two stages. The first establishes how far the bullet can expand, while the second programs it to expand at a fast and consistent rate.
This round’s bullet profile and case are both designed to feed as smoothly as possible into a semi-auto’s chamber. The case’s nickel plating additionally serves to fend off the kind of corrosion which can compromise functionality. Clean-burning propellant and CCI’s famously reliable primer tie the whole package together: a cartridge you can truly trust in your small everyday carry’s magazine!
