The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has awarded Speer a contract worth up to $112 million for its 9mm service ammunition. CBP is one of the world’s largest law enforcement agencies and is charged with border security while also overseeing lawful international trade and travel. (Read our article on the history of the Border Patrol National Pistol Team.)

This is the largest duty contract won in Speer company history. The single-award, Indefinite Delivery Indefinite Quantity contract is a strategically sourced contract for all DHS components and other federal agencies. The ordering period is for a total of five years with deliveries to begin this August.

CBP selected a round utilizing Speer's Gold Dot technology. The bullet features a pressure-formed lead core that is bonded to an extremely uniform jacket a single atom at a time. The design virtually eliminates separation on impact for more retained weight and consistent penetration depths. The Gold Dot hollow-point design expands consistently through the full range of barriers. Finally, reliable ignition and cycling are delivered thanks to sealed primers and nickel-plated brass.
