Speer to Launch New Products at the 2018 SHOT Show

ANOKA, Minnesota – Speer will launch five new products within several lines during the 2018 SHOT Show (Booth No. 14551), January 23-26 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Highlights include the new Speer Handloading Manual No. 15 and Gold Dot 200-grain 10mm Auto. Gold Dot ammunition’s reliability has made it the No. 1 choice for law enforcement, and the powerful 10mm Auto load offers the same performance for self-defense. Additionally, the new edition of the Speer Handloading Manual features updated recipes with the latest propellants for more than 120 legacy cartridges, as well as data for 13 new cartridges, including 204 Ruger, 6.5 Creedmoor and 300 Blackout.

“Shooters will appreciate the many new options available for them in 2018,” said Brian Anderson, Senior Marketing Manager for Speer. “Speer’s new products are sure to impress.”

Gold Dot Personal Protection 10mm Auto: The exclusive Gold Dot construction process gets the most from this power-packed 200-grain self-defense load.
