LEWISTON, Idaho – January 7, 2020 – Speer is introducing several new, high-performance products at the 2020 SHOT Show (Booth No. 14551), January 21-24 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. Attendees who stop by Speer’s booth will get a first look at the all-new Gold Dot Carry Gun, Gold Dot 5.7x28mm, and Gold Dot Rifle Personal Protection ammunition.
“We are very excited to launch nine outstanding products from Speer in 2020, said Speer Product Director Mike Holm. “Options include the industry’s first 5.7x28mm round designed specifically for self-defense, a Gold Dot handgun product line optimized for compact carry pistols, and new self-defense rifle loads optimized for peak FBI protocol performance though barrels shorter than 16 inches. All this new ammunition is sure to grab the attention and exceed the expectations of all self-defenders seeking options for these types of firearms.”
Speer has broken new ground with an all-new Gold Dot® load—the first 5.7x28mm round specifically designed for self-defense. Like all Gold Dot ammunition, the bullet is built using Speer’s exclusive Uni-Cor method. The jacket is bonded to the core one atom at a time, virtually eliminating core-jacket separation and creating a projectile that’s accurate, tough and consistent through all common barriers. High-quality brass, reliable primers and specially formulated propellant produce optimal feeding and ballistics in 5.7x28mm firearms.
Designed specifically for compact pistols, Speer has built upon the law-enforcement proven Gold Dot G2 bullet, optimizing the design and loading to provide superior feeding, ballistics and terminal performance through compact concealed handguns. Gold Dot Carry Gun features several exclusive bullet design features, the result is extremely uniform expansion, better separation of the petals, and more consistent penetration across barrier types. Available in 9mm Luger 135-grain, 40 S&W 165-grain and 45 Auto +P 200-grain.
New Gold Dot Short Barrel rifle is engineered to provide industry-leading performance in FBI protocol testing through barrels less than 16 inches long. Its bullets are built using Speer’s exclusive Uni-Cor® method. The jacket is bonded to the core one atom at a time, virtually eliminating core-jacket separation and creating a projectile that’s accurate, tough and consistent through all common barriers. Available in three options for 223 Rem. plus 308 Win. and 300 BLK
