    Yesterday, we were testing some Speer Gold Dot 124 GR 9mm hollow point in the range (not much because it tears up our blocks).

    We gathered some of the bullets and I thought I'd share with the JD. Here are some pics if you're interested.

    Nice I used to use that round. Recently I switched over to the Winchester "train" and "defend" system.

    I used to carry Speer gold dots in my .380 but I made the switch to hardball as u just simply cannot achieve appropriate velocities for reliable expansion even with +P so penetration is pretty much the name of the game for .380 and .38spl, shot placement too. Neither of these calibers are the best option really for self defense.

    I carry buffalo bore wadcutters in my .38 for the same reason, penetration. I used to carry Speer gold dots in every handgun I own but for my full size carry guns I found that the feds and LEO are getting extremely effective results with Federal HST 124gr 9mm. So that's what I carry and it looks really cool mushroomed out.
