    Speer Gold Dot Law Enforcement

    I just got two of the 50rd boxes today and I thought I was loosing my mind, but it's quite a bit lighter weight than my Hornady XTPs. I know the XTPs have brass casings, but what are the Gold Dots? I couldn't get over how much lighter my Glock was loaded with the new ammo. I noticed the smoother feel to the casings as well and even racking the slide to chamber a round felt smoother. Anyone had the same experience with the Gold Dots? These rounds are in my 357 SIG and both are 125gr.

    The silver cases are nickle plated brass, there should be no difference in the weight of the casings. If they are both 125 gr then the only difference would be the powder charge and I doubt you would be able to feel that difference.

    I don't know why there appears to be a noticeable difference in them to you.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I know, it doesn't make sense to me either. I can feel the difference just holding two fully loaded mags.

    The only real way to tell is to weigh both rounds. If they are different pull the bullet on each and weigh everything separate. Maybe the factory messed up and put the wrong weight on the box.

    Speer only makes one weight for 357 SIG Gold Dot though, the 125gr. My only other thought is that the casing might not be as thick.

    That's why you need to weigh everything separate, to find the culprit.
