The NEW Speer Gold Dot G2 Carbine 9mm 135 Grain GDC HP ammo retails at an MSRP of $76.99 per box of 50 rounds. Is this is bit expensive? Yes, but it is meant strictly for competition; its cleaner, has a distinct recoil impulse, and is supremely accurate. All of the specifications for this new ammunition can be read below as presented by Speer:
- Gold Dot G2-style bullet
- Elastomer-filled nose for better expansion through barriers
- Loaded for optimal velocities and feeding in carbines
- Effective penetration and expansion through common barriers
For the first time ever, defenders can get Gold Dot’s legendary accuracy and terminal performance in ammunition built specifically for carbine platforms. Gold Dot® Carbine produces ideal velocities through carbine-length barrels and cycles flawlessly. The G2®-style, elastomer filled bullet nose is tuned to produce extremely effective penetration and expansion through common barriers.
While the GDC HP (Gold Dot Carbine Hollow-Point) will be extremely effective in competition, you could also deploy it for home defense if you happen to keep a defense carbine at home. Speer cites that it has effective penetration and expansion through common barrier tests so it would be more than adequate for competition and defense – you choose.
