Gold Dot is the first high performance ammo loaded with true bonded core bullets. Uni-cor technology literally builds the jacket one molecule at a time, virtually eliminating core jacket separations. Experienced handgunners know that such separations are the most common cause of bullet failure. For larger game, the Gold Dot soft points give deeper penetration and controlled expansion. These special soft points start the same as Gold Dot hollow points, then the cavity is closed to produce a soft point profile. This means greater penetration before expansion commences along predefined lines in the lead core.

Speer Gold Dot Hollow Point bullets are about the best out there for personal defense. These .44 specials are designed to expand at the lower velocity of a .44 special vs. the .44 magnum. I use them in my S&W model 29 .44 mag, but at reduced loads, so that the recoil is not so bad. I load them at 1000-1100 fps, which gives 475 - 575 ft. lbs of energy.
