Gold Dot is the first high-performance ammo loaded with true bonded-core bullets, our patented Gold Dot. Our Uni-Cor technology literally builds the jacket one molecule at a time, virtually eliminating core-jacket separations. Each Gold Dot bullet we load is tuned for the cartridge it goes in. Nose profile, jacket thickness, cavity shape and profile are carefully set to insure that service-class cartridges meet and exceed the stringent terminal ballistics standards of law enforcement. Gold Dot is primed with famous CCI primers for sure-fire ignition and slick, nickel-plated brass cases for smooth feeding. This is loaded ammunition.
