    Speer Gold Dot LE and Civilian

    I've just recently tested (for reliability) and now carry Speer Gold Dot 180gr that I bought from ATG. It's the Law Enforcement version. I just bought a box(50) from Sportsman's Warehouse for $15 less than ATG. It doesn't say law enforcement. It also is 180gr GDHP.

    Is this the same ammo?

    BTW... They also had Blazer loaded with GDHP bullets. Never seen that before. They were only a couple of dollars less so I went for the real thing.

    Stay safe.

    Your Speer Gold Dots are the same. ATK [can't remember what it stands for] owns Speer, Blazer, Federal, among others.

    Speer 180gr GDHP is a wise choice.
    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    It stands for Alliant Techsystems. I worked there for 4 years and in that time I never could figure out how they got ATK from that name.
