Remington Ammunition 185 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

This is 45 ACP Remington Golden Saber 185gr. +P Hollow Point Ammo. The Golden Saber High Performance Jacketed Hollow Point handgun ammo showcases Remington's continuing advances in bullet technology. No other handgun cartridge offers so many high-performance features for home security and law enforcement applications. Some of these features include: A nickel plated case for smooth functioning in all types of handguns. An exclusive brass bullet jacket which controls mushrooming and releases energy over a longer distance, compared to copper jacketed bullets. The nose cuts of the bullet go completely through the bullet jacket to enhance mushroom initiation over the widest ranges of practical velocities. The reduced nose diameter greatly increases accurracy over a wide range of distances. The primer and case mouth is sealed for moisture protection and the primers are triple checked during the manufacturing process, to ensure the most reliable functioning handgun ammo manufactured. The powders are treated with flash retardants to greatly decrease the amount of muzzle flash. This is a premium personal protection and law enforcement round. This ammo is packed in 25rd. boxes.

    "Remington Golden Saber, 185 grain +P ammo" is my go to 45 acp carry ammo! I have carried this ammo in my 1911's Colt models Gov't and Commander, Kimber Custom, TLE and Pro Carry and Glock models 21 and 30, I've carried this ammo in all types of environments, from desert conditions in sand and dust storms to the Mountains while crossing streams and have gotten the ammo wet and also submerged in water. The ammo still functioned reliably! I have fired the Remington Golden Saber ammo on the night range qualification course, with no issues with the muzzle flash! The recoil is less than the 230 grain +P ammo. I've had no jacket separation issues. This round penetrates well and has great expansion to almost 3/4 of an inch in my testing. I've used other brands of ammo but always come back to the "GS." I trust Remington Golden Saber ammo as my carry ammo!

    Never jams. period. My first .45 carry was a S&W 457 which couldn't feed Hydra-shoks. These fed flawless. My current .45 is an HK USP Compact that has had jams with Gold-Dots. Again,the Golden Sabers fire perfect and without issues. Hard hitting and 100% reliable. Also,185 grain +P recoils MUCH less than 230 +P.

    This ammo feeds flawlessly through my 3" barrel Para Nitehawg as well as all of my 1911 government models. I like the nickel plated cases as some competitors use a brass that has caused feeding issues with my double-stacked magazines. IMHO, there isn't a significant difference with the "flash supressed" powder when shooting a 3" barrel. There is a highly visible muzzle flash when shooting at night, and this has proved unavoidable regardless of which brand of ammo that I'm shooting. I honestly don't believe that this would be an issue for most people armed with an "up close and personal" self-defense weapon. Golden Sabre .45+P is a very reliable and accurate round in which I have complete confidence for my concealed carry protection needs.

    After more than forty-five years shooting the .45 ACP I am delighted with this round. It is very accurate and moves very fast at 1140fps. and 485 ft.lbs. I get ten out of ten in the black circle at 30 ft. It is also good for point shooting up to about twelve feet. And... it has a real muzzle flash. Super good in four inch barrels. I have shot it out of 1911's, five and four inches. XD's both four and five inches as welll as a 220 Sig. Exellent performance every time. Great SD round. This and the Speer GD 200 grain + p are the best two .45 ACP's around for fighting rounds. However, Federal's 230 grain Hydra Shok is the number 1 rated man stopper -- wish they had all been around back when I was working.

    Feeds perfectly in my 3" Kimber. Also, I like the fact that like military ammo, the primers are sealed with lacquer - an extra margin of protection if events unfold unexpectedly and everything gets wet. Next, I like the Nickel plated cases and the accuracy is better than expected on a HP round.<br />

    Separately, the marketing literature on this product says that the powder is flash suppressed - not my experience. In fact one attribute of this round is that is has more flash than any round I have fired. Having said that, if I can put three rounds in my target, and give away my position with muzzle flash I simply don't care. In fact, after three rounds on target, I'll give the target my name, address and social security number. The other side of the coin is that if the flash impairs night vision this could be a big problem for some operators. This is because the loss of night vision may limit the likelihood of getting three rounds on target.
