I am such a sucker for self-defense ammunition packaging. Maybe that’s because I consider mushrooming ammo pretty much of a muchness. I mean, is brand choice really going to be the difference between life or death? I mean, MY life or death? Well if it is . . .
Gold Dot has a great rep. And the good folks at Speer are offering an almighty 200-grain 10mm round to take down, um, anything on two legs? And a lot on four.
With a bit of luck our resident war her and reloader JonWayne Taylor will opine on these calibers in the comments below. After a word from our potential ammo sponsor.
ANOKA, Minnesota – Speer will launch five new products within several lines during the 2018 SHOT Show (Booth No. 14551), January 23-26 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Highlights include the new Speer Handloading Manual No. 15 and Gold Dot 200-grain 10mm Auto. Gold Dot ammunition’s reliability has made it the No. 1 choice for law enforcement, and the powerful 10mm Auto load offers the same performance for self-defense.
Additionally, the new edition of the Speer Handloading Manual features updated recipes with the latest propellants for more than 120 legacy cartridges, as well as data for 13 new cartridges, including 204 Ruger, 6.5 Creedmoor and 300 Blackout.
“Shooters will appreciate the many new options available for them in 2018,” said Brian Anderson, Senior Marketing Manager for Speer. “Speer’s new products are sure to impress.”
