In the past packing a short barrel meant you were dealing with less velocity and less reliable expansion. Speer has created an entire category of specialized ammunition designed specifically for back-up guns. Gold Dot Short Barrel was introduced in 2004 and designed from the ground up to work in 2-inch barrels. Speer ATK redesigned select Gold Dot bullets to make the cavity larger for reliable expansion at the reduced velocities common to short barrel handguns. You also get less "kick" to keep you on target when wielding sharp snapping revolvers.

Muzzle velocity: 860 fps
Velocity at 50 yards: 818 fps
Muzzle energy: 222 ft/lbs
Energy at 50 yards: 200 ft/lbs
Uses: Personal Protection, Law Enforcement

Price is per 20 round box.

5.0 Rating Short Barrel Defense - 8/3/2008
Reviewer: Tony Nista
This 135 grain Speer 38 Special +P round was designed specifically for the NYPD to issue to their officers who carry short barrel snub revolvers for back-up or off duty. I have tried a few boxes with my stainless steel and alloy Smith J frames. The recoil is light in steel guns, although a bit stout in alloy guns. Either way they are very accurate in short barrel revolvers out to 21 foot distances. This ammo has a clean quality appearance and the hollow point cavity is extra wide for quick and reliable expansion. For 4 inch or larger revolvers go with Speer's 125 grain +p, but for short barrel guns, this 135 grain short barrel load is excellent.

5.0 Rating Ronald617 - 11/25/2008
Reviewer: Ronald617
I carry this load in my back up gun (S&W Airweight Bodyguard) and my duty gun (3" Mod 66). Very accurate and controllable. Impressive in gelatin. I bet my life on it.

3.0 Rating consider - 2/25/2010
Reviewer: Jay
Recoil is a bear in alloy S&W J-Frames (15 oz). If you shoot no more than 5 rounds per range trip this ammunition might be fine for you. If you like to practice on a regular basis w/ your carry ammo stick with a lighter recoil ammunition such as Golden Saber +P. The recoil in an alloy J-Frame HURTS.
