Speer Ammunition recently announce the selection of its Speer Gold Dot ammunition for a joint Nordic police contract. Both Norwegian and Swedish police agencies selected the 124-grain load in 9mm. Sister company Federal previously won a rifle ammo contracts with the agencies. The duty handgun contract will supply the agencies up to four years.
Nordic Police Opt for Speer
“We are extremely pleased with this prestigious contract award, as it validates the high level of trust the international law enforcement agencies have with our extremely reliable and innovative products,” said Speer’s President Jason Vanderbrink.
“The use of Gold Dot technology in this contract ammunition ensures the highest performance threshold and absolute confidence in performance, and we are proud to produce ammunition that meets and exceeds our customer’s strict requirements,” said VP of Law Enforcement, Government and International Sales, David Leis.
The selected duty rounds utilize Speer Gold Dot technology. Setting benchmarks for self-defense and duty work, the bullets see use worldwide. The bullet also features a pressure-formed lead core. It bonds to an extremely uniform jacket a single atom at a time. The process virtually eliminates separation on impact. The performance delivers more retained weight and consistent penetration depts.
The Gold Dot hollow-point design expands consistently through a full range of barriers. Sealed primers and nickel-plated brass promote reliable ignition and cycling. For even more info, please visit speer.com.
