U.S.A.-(Ammoland.com)- 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.

Speer has been a trusted name in ammunition business for more than 75 years. The iconic manufacturer’s reputation for making the world’s finest component bullets and loaded cartridges goes all the way back to 1943. Speer is proud of its longstanding success and looks forward to a bright future ahead.

New products and much more from Speer can be viewed at booth 14551 during the 2020 SHOT Show. For more information on Speer, go to www.speer-ammo.com.

Damn them and their 20 round boxes. They sell these 20 rd abominations to citizens for the same or more as the 50 rd boxes are sold to Government for. If I were king of the world there would be but one gun law. “No handgun ammo shall be offered for sale in boxes of less than fifty rounds.”

My post went “poof”. First time, how odd. Maybe it will show up by and by.

I was just pointing out that there are places like Target Sports USA who sell fifty round boxes and that I have purchased from them a few times and everything was as advertised.

Grigori: Look online for the LEO 50 round boxes. I’ve gotten them from AmmoToGo and a couple other sites. They’re usually the result of overruns and cancellations, so you have to keep your eye out.

My goto place is SGAmmo.com. They have Speer GD, Federal HST and many others at good prices and in large quantities. There are other outfits, like SGAmmo.com, that sell LE handgun, rifle and shotgun ammo to us, mere mortals, such as usarmorment.com. If you buy those 20-round boxes, then that would be your fault!

To make a point for those who may not be aware: Very often (most of the time), the 50-rd. boxes have a different product. Many times, the 20-rd. boxes have nickel-plated brass and those in the 50-rd. boxes do not. Nickeled cases feed more smoothly AND last MUCH longer in a carry environment. Other differences may/will include: primers and case mouths being sealed or not sealed, powder having a flash-suppressing coating (or NOT — VERY important since most defensive shootings occur in low-light conditions where flash would inhibit vision for seeing threats/follow-up shots), different primers might be used that are… Read more »

Wrong! Where did you gat that information from? Any sources? 20-round boxes are for people that don’t know better!

The Speer Lawman product is training JHP ammo and comes in brass cases, while the Speer Gold Dot product is carry ammo and comes in Nickel-plated brass cases. Both come in 50-round boxes. Federal HydraShok and HST are both Nickel-plated brass carry ammo and come in 50-round boxes, so is Hornady Critical Defense and Critical Duty. All this carry ammo has low-flash powder!

To add, the 50-round boxes sold at SGAmmo and various other places is actual law enforcement carry ammo. That is Speer LE Gold Dot Duty, Federal HST LE, and Hornady Critical Duty, for handgun ammo. They also sell law enforcement rifle ammo, such as Speer Gold Dot Soft Point LE and Federal Tactical Bonded Soft Point.
