One of the early entries into the new engineered bonded care jacketed hollow points that were introduced in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, the Remington Golden Saber came out in 1991 with a big bang. It was instantly taken to by the die hard Remington fans and had an excellent propensity for high weight retention which helped it to perform well in gelatin tests and in real world law enforcement scenarios.
A 185 grain bullet is a good mid-range projectile for self-defense in the .45 ACP platform, offering a good amount of energy on target and over all mass of bullet, without sacrificing the speed needed for adequate penetration. When you buy this, you’ll get a bulk case with 500 rounds total. That ammo is packaged in 20 individual boxes with each containing 25 rounds.
The staying power of the Remington Golden Saber has shown the obvious winning geometry of the projectile and the powder mix. The nickel plated brass and the cool look of the cartridge didn’t hurt the marketing push either. But ultimately it’s not how a round looks that makes it so beloved in the audience’s hearts, it is how it performs. With a velocity of 1015 out of the muzzle and delivering right on 425 ft. lbs. of energy at muzzle exit, this is still a venerable round for self-defense.
A proven round for a fantastic price.
