It's been in stock and on sale for what seems like months. They seem to run out of the 75g from time to time.

I've been picking up a few boxes here and there, while wondering why its so cheap and seems to be an endless supply of the 55 and 64g.

I'd think at 9.99 a box, they'd all be long gone by now.

There are a plethora of acceptable blind-to-barriers projectiles now available for the 5.56mm/223 Remington.  A short list of those projectiles includes the Speer 62 grain TBBC, the Nosler 64 grain BSB, the Black Hills proprietary 50 grain TSX, the Speer 62 grain and 64 grain Gold Dots and the Hornady 55 grain GMX.

What? I thought it was suppose a quality bullet? Hmmm that's disappointing. I'm gonna assume its the same bullet with CBCs offering.

Who said it wasn't? It all depends on what you're wanting to do.

The shipping sale finally came back on the 64 gr so I pulled the trigger...finally!

PSA has the 64 gr. on a daily sale today.  Free shipping on 10+ boxes!

Molon, can you confirm that Speer does NOT make the Gold Dot in 5.56 anymore?

How would these compare to the older Hornday 8126N load that I stocked up a few years ago?

Any issues with feed ramp leading with these loads?

Fragmenting OTM bullet versus blind to barriers bullet.

The Gold Dots have some of the least amount of exposed lead at the meplat.  I haven't had any malfunctions with the Gold Dot ammunition, but I also haven't fired more than ~120 rounds of it in between cleanings.

I will buy again in the future if they run the same sale.

Seems to be a regular price, now. And the 75gr has gone down to 12.99 per box. Salad days....

@molon

Can you please reload the Gold-Dot vs Fusion vs Fusion MSR pictures, they are failing to load and would be very helpful for me.

Thank you!
