Speer Law Enforcement (LE), under the parent company Vista Outdoors which also owns Federal ammunition, Savage Firearms, and a few other major players in the industry. It is a well-documented pedigree of quality that has been relied on by scores of agencies across the nation. Speer’s Gold Dot JHP 9×19 ammo is a standard self-defense round that’s earned the attention and respect of both civilian gun owners and law enforcement agencies all over the world.
The 124 grain jacketed hollow point is one of three weights more or less standard in 9mm loads, those being 115 grain, 124 grains, and 147 grains. The 115 grain loads are very fast but lack mass. 147-grain projectiles have the mass which shooters like, but the energy and velocity drop significantly in 147-grain loads. 124-grain hollow points seem to be the best marriage of mass with velocity and energy in this caliber.
Speer’s Gold Dot LE is designed for maximum weight retention while penetrating a broad array of materials that could commonly be encountered in the field. Their 124 grain in 9mm advertises 1,150 fps at the muzzle with 364 ft/lbs of energy, dropping to 1,089 f/ps at 25 yards with 326 ft/lbs of energy.
