.480 Ruger Speer Gold Dot Hunting Hollow Point 275 Grain 1450 fps 20 Round Box
When you make the best handgun duty and personal protection ammunition, it's natural to apply that technical excellence to building ammunition for hunting big game with a handgun. We started with the foundation of the bonded-core handgun bullet that made regular Speer Gold Dot so successful and enhanced it for success on medium to large game. Gold Dot Hunting bullets are bonded with our Uni-Cor process, but get heavier jackets for tough game. We choose weights that are optimum for larger animals so there is sufficient penetration. Then, we make sure the bullet style is appropriate to the task. We make both hollow point and soft point bullet styles for hunting. Hollow points are generally used for lighter game; the soft points produce the deep penetration needed for the big ones. Our soft points start as hollow points; in final forming we close the cavity to make a soft point. The "memory" of the hollow point is embedded in the lead core, so the bullet penetrates deeper before expansion begins along predefined lines in the jacket and core.
These bullets retain over 90 percent of their initial weight after expansion. They're accurate, too, for those longer shots. You have the confidence that your ammunition will do the job if you do your part. Like regular Gold Dot, our hunting ammunition is loaded in nickel-plated brass cases and equipped with famous CCI Magnum primers. Gold Dot Hunting ammunition is available for the 41 Magnum, 44 Magnum, 454 Casull, 480 Ruger, and 50 Action Express. Find your old favorite in our new redesigned Gold Dot packaging.
