Speer has made a name for itself by manufacturing some of the world’s best component bullets and loaded ammunition. This legacy began back in 1943 when Vernon Speer saw a need in reloading when people weren’t able to get the needed components from ammo manufacturers during WWII. Speer decided to fill this need by initially focusing on hunting rifle bullets, but soon expanded to include mass-produced jacketed handgun bullets as well. In the 60s, Speer introduced the celebrated Lawman line of ammunition. Today, the Speer Gold Dot line of ammunition is the most trusted for law enforcement duty ammo. Speer is also pleased to offer these same rounds for civilian personal protection as well. Though newer and more innovative rounds and lines of ammunition have been introduced over the years, the Speer formula for success has always remained the same: determination, independence, and self-reliance.
