Speer was founded in 1944 by Vernon Speer, a man known for his creativity and innovation. Vernon served in the U.S. Navy when he was a young man, and when he was 21 he invented a new biplane engine. Determined to prove its function, Vernon simply dropped it into a plane and took off; fortunately, the engine worked just fine and Vernon’s innovation was just getting started. When he started Speer it was by renting space in the basement of a grocery store, but it wasn’t long before the company was doing so well a much larger space was needed and they moved into their current property in Lewiston, Idaho, along the Snake River. Today Speer is known for superior quality and exceptional performance.
This particular Speer ammunition is made for your 9mm. At 124 grain these are considered pretty lightweight rounds for the cartridge size, and being lighter means they’re going to fly down-range with increased speed while still retaining enough energy to make an impressive impact. These are TMJ, Total Metal Jacket, rounds, so they don’t expand on impact. Being TMJ means the bullet is fully enclosed, and that means lead isn’t released into the air when you squeeze the trigger, which keeps the air around you cleaner and keeps your gun cleaner as well. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 1090 feet per second and muzzle energy of 327 foot-pounds. This ammunition is best for target practice, shooting drills, and plinking.
There are 50 target rounds in this box. This box is the perfect size for toting in your range bag when you head to the range or your favorite outdoor shooting spot and is also a good size for stacking in your safe for a rainy (or sunny) day. And because Speer manufactures this ammunition in fresh brass cases with boxer primer, it can be reloaded, allowing for even more time at the range. Speer manufactures ammunition at their longtime plant in Lewiston, Idaho. Don’t let your 9mm sit alone, cold, and gathering dust. Spend some quality time warming up your favorite gun with this high-quality ammunition.
