Speer Ammunition


This ammunition was extremely resistant to crimp creep. Velocities averaged just under 1300 fps, which is consistent with other bullets in this weight range. Due to low product availability, Speer was only able to supply me with enough ammunition for two tests. This was enough, however, to convince me that this is a highly reliable cartridge for the Alaskan, and one that can be easily recommended.
