LEWISTON, Idaho – Speer® introduces a new Gold Dot® Short Barrel® Personal Protection offering. The .22 Win. Mag. hollow point rounds provide reliable expansion and penetration for use in self defense situations. These new rimfire options are now available.
Gold Dot Standard of Personal Protection
Speer Gold Dot has gained a reputation for high-performance ammunition and brings Personal Protection rounds to the rimfire platform for the first time. The Gold Dot’s reliable expansion and toughness make it suitable for the smaller 22 Win Mag. Those carrying popular handguns chambered in this make-sense caliber now have a go-to option for self defense situations.
Short Barrel, Strong Performance
These loads are designed for compact rimfire handguns and specific self defense applications. A large cavity ensures maximum expansion and terminal ballistics at reduced velocities. Consistent 10 to 11-inch penetration was achieved in factory testing–in barrels as short as two inches.
“We wanted to design a self defense option that catered to the rimfire platform,” said Brand Director Rick Stoeckel. “We engineered these rounds for effective expansion and consistent functioning in close-quarter situations–where performance is absolutely critical.”
