I’ve carried GD, I like the HST now but either would kill a [bleep] deder than Roy Clark.

LOL. Yep! I’ve killed quite a few hogs at the Ranch with the Gold Dot .357 Sig loading.

I've always heard good things about consistent expansion from GD. .
Have you kept up on the latest developments?
As an instructor, do you have a recommendation for round count to prove reliability for a students chosen CCW?

Gold Dot, HST and Ranger SXT are the top of the heap in my opinion. Although I favor GD and purchase them for my department, I wouldn't have a problem with the others.

Helpful post by the OP

The price doesn’t seem that bad for the quality and hollow points

That's a good defense load at a good price. I'm well supplied, but nice to see it's available.

Thanks for the recommendation.
It doesn't sound like that's changed since I last looked into it.
That speaks well for the GDs.

It sounds like you are confident in the history of the Gold Dot.

It sounds like a good time to split a thousand with a purchase for anyone ready to buy.

3 months ago these same rounds would’ve been at least $1 / round.

I was very interested, but I never have seen any kind of Gold Dot ammo packed in an ammo can like that. They all have been packaged in 50 round boxes. So, I am skeptical, especially at that price.

First thing I thought when I saw that too. Never seen any Factory Speer Ammo packaged like that.

Eight five stars reviews on that page and 86 on Ammoseek.

"Top-notch customer service and extremely fast shipping

Nathaniel - 2021-03-28 13:04:53

I had never heard of Velocity Ammunition Sales, but they had an insanely good price on a can of Federal HST, so I decided to risk it. I was pleasantly surprised. First, their customer service is top-notch. I had reservations about the ammunition because I had never seen this type of ammo (Federal HST) sold in this type of packaging (metal ammo can). However, a quick email to customer service alleviated my worries- with an hour of sending my email, they informed me this was over production from a law enforcement contract. Second, shipping was also extremely fast- I checked the reviews on AmmoSeek prior to submitting my order, and I almost thought that these reviews were fake given that every one seems to mention how fast the shipping was. I now see why everyone mentions the shipping speed- it truly is industry-leading. The same day I placed the order, the ammunition shipped and arrived within 3 days. Very impressed with Velocity Ammunition Sales and will order form them again."

I don't feel cranky and I meant no disrespect. It just tripped my "too good to be totally legit" meter. I could be wrong. Carry on.

Someone is buying it. Down from 45 cans in stock when I posted it to 31 cans right now.

I don't own a .40 S&W any more, but those 165gr GD's are a deal at $.45 a round. I couldn't tell you the last time I saw .40 S&W ammo on a store shelf.

I’m good for a bit having laid in 4K just before the shortages. Mine all came packaged 500rd each in the 50rd plastic holders but no cardboard.
