The boxes say Gold Dot
personal protection
45 Colt 250gr GDHP

They are put up in nickel cases with a Speer HS and lightly crimped. 20rnd boxes and the lot # is D03Q41 the 0 might be a C.

There is specially loaded to law enforcement standards talk on both sides and industry warnings on the bottom.

No velocity markings. They were first rumored and I think listed by folks like Midway to be 850fps.

Later the Speer site said 750fps but insiders inquired and were told they will do about 800fps and someone on the Ruger site went to an event and was able to fire some into Gel and chrono them. Got a little over 800 and good expansion from his Vaquero 4 5/8". This made me feel better since I had bought 100rnds '5 boxes'.

I bought some Deep Curl 250gr bullets, 2 boxes of 50 from Midway then this mess happened and no components are available. They look exactly the same.
I hope this is helpful to you.

Yes it is a Zombie thread but several folks here are interested in S&W N-frame Revolvers chambered in .45acp and like to discuss the loading of same...........
