    Speer Gold Dot 230Gr. .45 ACP info request

    I'm new so I thought I would say Hi.

    I have a 4" Springfield Champion 1911 and I bought some .45 ACP Speer Gold Dot in 230 gr. I don't have any ballistics information on this round such as velocity, energy etc. I only know that they generally make good ammo and I have used in in my other guns.

    Can anyone help me out with some of the specifics on this ammo?

    I'm assuming you are talking about the Speer produced ammo?????

    If so: (in 4 inch barrel)

    230gr GDHP

    Velocity(in feet per second)
    Muzzle 820
    50 yards 783
    100 yards 749

    Muzzle energy (in ft.lbs.)
    muzzle 343
    50 yards 313
    100 yards 287

    This round is great in short barreled handguns (under 4 inch).

    (For me I use a Speer GDHP 185g or 200g loaded to +P, in 5inch 1911s. The 185g gets me 1100 ft/sec at the muzzle!)

    Gold dots are great, I also use them in .40S&W.
