If you need a real whack 'em load for your .45 Colt (standard pressure) revolver (such as The Judge by Taurus), this Littlestone Ammunition custom Excel Elite loading of the Speer 230-grain Short Barrel Gold Dot bullet gets the job done for you. Launching at 950 feet per second (3-inch barrel), it delivers more than 461 foot pounds of energy on target. The wide bullet diameter, coupled with the unique short barrel bullet design, gives this load tremendous knock down power.
The Gold Dot is a mission-critical bullet designed to exceed FBI performance standards and a law enforcement favorite. The short barrel version of the Gold Dot was developed for subcompact handguns that have become so popular with law enforcement personnel and for concealed carry. Gold Dot Short Barrel bullets have wider tips and deeper cavities to promote full expansion at the lower velocity produced by the shorter barrels of subcompact handguns.
The Gold Dot, with a true bonded core (the industry's first) and other design features, expands throughout its velocity range, yet passes through barriers and functions normally at the target, retaining upward of 95 percent of its weight. Littlestone Ammunition's tight manufacturing tolerances, required to produce exceptional custom ammunition, makes this the best custom revolver ammunition available.
Because of Littlestone Ammunition?s tight manufacturing tolerances, it performs consistently and therefore typically is quite accurate. But regardless of any ammo?s quality, handguns can be finicky, and you must have ammo that:
shoots accurate, tight groups from your gun
your gun digests reliably
shoots to point of aim
and has tolerable recoil helping you get back on target quickly
Finding that load can be expensive if you have to buy a full box of 20 or 50 rounds for every type you want to try. Which is why we developed our sample pack system. With one purchase of 20 or 50 rounds, you can test either four or five different loads, helping you find ammo that meets all your needs much more economically.
Each of our sample packs comes complete with the written load number record of each load in the pack, and a color-coded test-fire evaluation form. So you might consider testing one or more of our sample packs containing this bullet, which can be found in a variety of the Sample Pack product listings for this cartridge.
After you test one or more sample packs, if you and your gun like the load, come back and purchase it in greater quantities. Of course, if you prefer, use the "Add To Cart" button above to purchase this 50 rounds of Littlestone Ammunition now.
