Is Speer’s 124 Grain Gold Dot 9mm Any Good?

Is Speer’s 124 grain Gold Dot 9mm any good?  In a short barrel?  Can it pass our “Frost Giant” extreme ballistic gel test?

I’ve been carrying this round for a long time in my EDC.
This test only goes to show that you must practice your shot placement no matter how good the bullet is.
And if you must draw and shoot, shoot until the threat is stopped.
