Speer’s reputation for making the world’s finest component bullets and loaded ammunition goes all the way back to 1943. That’s when Vernon Speer started building bullets because reloaders couldn’t get the components they needed from ammo companies during World War II. Although he initially focused on hunting rifle bullets, he also built the first mass-produced jacketed handgun bullets for hunting and law enforcement. The original product lines have been expanded and new ones added. But through the changes, our formula for success has been constant: Determination, self-reliance, and independence that show in all of our ammunition and components.
