What's the difference, if any, between the LE/Duty and Personal Protection varieties of Gold Dot loads? I'm looking at 9mm, .45ACP and .38Spl, if it matters.

The only difference is 20 vs 50 round box.

For my 9s I like the 124gr +P short barrel GD. I've only seen it in the 20 rd box as 23611. IF it ever comes out in a 50 rd box, it would be 53611.

I suspected as much, thanks. Just want to be sure I'm ordering what I want. Any yeah, I tend toward the short barrel version too.

In comparing different types of Speer ammunition, look at the five digit “load number” on the box or in other descriptions. The first number indicates the packaging: 2 refers to a 20-round box, 5 means a 50-round box. The last four digits identify the load itself. The last four of the 9mm 124 grain +P “short (3.5") barrel” Personal Protection load are 3611. The last four of the 124 grain +P standard (4 inch barrel) load are 3617—both for the Personal Protection and the LE packaging. As far as I have been able to determine, if there is any change in the bullet and/or velocity, the load number changes (as with the two Gold Dot 357 SIG loads).

As previously stated, no difference between Duty and Personal for the same 4 digit code.

Personal Protection 9MM +P Regular and Short Barrel (Speer website)


Duty 9MM +P Regular (same as PP Regular)


Duty 9MM +P Short Barrel (same as PP Short)

In 9mm, if you can find the G2, it's the way to go.

Big, big fan.
