    went to the gun store today to look around and ended up picking up a few boxes of Speer GoldDot. i want to switch my carry ammo up a bit from my Ranger SXTs. Anybody here use these? good or bad experiences. I expect them to perform well since they were pretty expensive.

    I carry them in .38spl+p in my j frame. not sure what all I could report on them. Not like I've shot anyone with them yet, but in the tests I've read, they perform well :dunno:

    Got some .357 rounds from DoubleTap that use Gold Dot bullets. Not sure how effective they would be, but for a "low flash" round they're loud as fuck and produce a FIVE FOOT flame.

    Good round but I rather stick with Ranger-T and get over double the ammo for same price if not less and it's just as good if not better.

    I've used them plenty, never had any ammo related issues with it. Hometown PD carries it, as at the time of decision it was the only bonded core JHP to help prevent the jacket from breaking off the core. There are a few others out there now, but Gold Dot is still good stuff. Carry ammo isn't really something to "switch it up" for no defined reason. If it works, don't fuck with it without just cause.

    +1 on the Ranger-T pricing.

    I'm using Corbon DPX, if it wasn't available my next choice would be Gold Dot.

    Double tap loads Gold Dot bullets but pushed a little faster. www.doubletapammo.com

    I have gold dots in my .357 mag revolver and my ruger 9mm.

    Havent performed any intruder ballistics with them yet though.

    I use .45 Ranger T's in my daily carry.

    I use Gold Dots in everything. And if you know where to buy them, you can get them for similar prices as Ranger-T.

    Florida Bullet is one source.

    I carry Gold Dots in my 1911, but Ranger SXT's in my G27 and G23. Local gunshop had the Gold Dots on sale so I picked up a few boxes.

    Florida Bullet was connected to the Mirage Technology website, which I can't seem to find right now. Mirage's website posted no prices, but they'd quote you over the phone. I know they were working on an online ordering system a few months back. Hope they haven't abandoned that end. Just give them a call.

    Ranger T and Hydroshocks also... lesser being Corbon you see once in awhile.

    Everytime a "what ammo do you carry" thread gets posted that's all you see. It's kind of pointless to have those threads.
