Speer Gold Dot Carbine Ammunition

Pistol-caliber carbines have become more popular in recent years, and Speer Ammo is taking advantage of the platforms’ longer barrel lengths with a specially developed defensive ammunition.

Speer Gold Dot Carbine loads have been formulated to achieve improved velocities through the 16" barrels found on most of today’s PCCs, and the 9 mm Luger load has been tuned to feed reliably in most carbines.

The rounds are loaded with a 135-grain Gold Dot G2 projectile that has an elastomer tip to improve expansion after penetrating barriers. Speer records a muzzle velocity of 1,170 f.p.s.

MSRP is $77 for 50 rounds. For more information, visit
