Speer Ammo has received a five-year contract for its 124-gr. 9 mm Luger +P Gold Dot ammunition by the New York City Police Department. The contract is worth up to $18 million.

“We are proud to support a majority of the nation’s law enforcement agencies and we will continue to focus on providing the best ammunition to their officers each and every day,” said Speer Ammunition President Jason Vanderbrink. “We are honored to be the ammunition brand of choice for the nation’s largest agency, the New York City Police Department. Speer Gold Dot duty and training rounds have a 20-year history supporting more than 35,000 NYPD officers who protect and serve their communities.”

Law enforcement and military ammunition “is the company’s heritage and foundation,” continued Vanderbrink. “Our unwavering support for the brave men and women who keep us safe is not subject to political rhetoric or winning a contract. We are proud to stand with our law enforcement agencies through thick and thin.”

Gold Dot was the first handgun ammunition loaded with true, bonded-core bullets. Speer’s exclusive Uni-Cor construction process bonds the jacket to the alloyed lead core one atom at a time, a process that virtually eliminates core-jacket separation while guaranteeing uniform jacket thickness.
