It’s not uncommon for relatives to start a family business and run it together. Some even succeed in keeping the reins of the company within the family for many a century, with Beretta being the brightest example. The case of the Speer brothers goes in a different direction, though. Instead of working together, each of them founded his own company. The most exciting thing about this is that both of those were ammunition companies that operated in the same city. Vernon Speer, the founder of the Speer Bullets, was the first to start his own company in 1943. The choice of the company’s focus, bullets, was determined by the lack of reloading components during World War II. Speer began with producing bullets for hunting rifle cartridges only but soon included jacketed handgun bullets into the company's portfolio. The 1960s witnessed the introduction of the Speer Lawman - the series of now-famous loaded ammunition that covers both handgun and rifle calibers. The company has greatly expanded its list of products since that time and become one of the main ammo suppliers for law enforcement officers and civilians alike. The production facility is still located in the city of Lewiston, Idaho.
The Lawman series is one of the two brand’s signature lines of ammunition. The Speer Lawman ammo brings the user consistency at an affordable price You can experiment with different loads to find the one that suits you best. You can choose from Speer Lawman 9mm, 45 Auto, .380 Auto, and .357 cartridges. The ammo features TMJ bullets with one-piece jackets, lead core, and clean-fire loads. Such spent cases look almost unfired due to the lack of heavy metals in the load.
Speer Gold Dot
The Gold Dot is the first ammo series loaded with true, bonded-core bullets. Utilizing the originally developed Uni-Cor method, Speer bonded the jacket to the core to the point where two become one. Clean burning propellants ensure consistent chamber pressures while delivering ultimate velocity. The options available include Speer Gold Dot 40 S&W, 9mm, .38 Special, and several others.
Staying true to its origins, Speer never stopped manufacturing bullets, and Gritr Sports is happy to give you the opportunity to acquire some. Reloading enthusiasts will appreciate 9mm, 22, 30, 45, and 355 bullets from an old-timer ammo component manufacturer.
