    Anyone have a source for that (either 55gr or 64gr)? I guess Speer really tries to restrict it to LE only maybe? Which is strange considering the good availability of handgun Gold Dots.

    Thanks, I overlooked sgammo for some reason.

    Still haven't found the 64gr version but even the 55gr appears to be a great round. I'm surprised it's only $17ish a box.

    According to "Doc", the Fed Fusion round is the same technology as the GD. I picked up 200rds of that to try out(62gr). I bought mine at PSA, but local WM stocks it, and I plan on getting some in .308 too.

    Couple shootings as of late with this 64 gr. round by the BP. One was near Tucson and was a DRT. The other had the same result as well I believe. Absolutely wicked round.

    Right now I'd say .223 Gold Dot (or any .223, 9mm, .45ACP, .22lr) and a few other calibers are impossible to find. From what I can see there is .40S&W available in some places.
