Recently, Speer Ammunition was awarded the joint Nordic Police 9 mm duty handgun ammunition contract for the company’s 124-grain Gold Dot load. Sister company Federal currently holds the duty rifle contract for .223 Rem. Tactical Bonded and .308 Win. Tactical Bonded Tip precision rounds. Speer’s new duty handgun contract will supply these law enforcement agencies for up to four years.

The selected duty rounds use Speer Gold Dot technology, which is highly regarded for both self-defense and duty use and purchased by consumers and law enforcement worldwide. The bullet features a pressure-formed lead core that is bonded to a uniform jacket that virtually eliminates separation on impact for more retained weight and consistent penetration depths. The Gold Dot hollow-point bullet design expands consistently through a full range of barriers. Reliable ignition and cycling are delivered thanks to sealed primers and nickel-plated brass.

The company is proud that its ammunition, built to rigorous standards, is being recognized at the international level with the awarding of the Nordic Police contract.

“We are extremely pleased with this prestigious contract award, as it validates the high level of trust the international law enforcement agencies have with our extremely reliable and innovative products,” said Jason Vanderbrink, the president of Speer. 

In addition, Speer Vice President of Law Enforcement, Government and International Sales, David Leis, chimed in regarding the Nordic Police contract.

“The testing specifications and procedures for these contracts were some of the most thorough in the world. The use of Gold Dot technology in this contract ammunition ensures the highest performance threshold and absolute confidence in performance, and we are proud to produce ammunition that meets and exceeds our customer’s strict requirements.”
