Remington Ammunition 230 Grain Jacketed Hollow-Point (JHP) Ammo Details

Law enforcement professionals very frequently chamber this 45 ACP round from Remington’s Golden Saber line of ammunition in their service pistols for a number of reasons. It’s intensely reliable, owing to how well its nickel plated brass casing resists corrosion, and also to its waterproofed mouth and primer. It additionally delivers a lot in low light environments: its shiny casing facilitates on-the-fly chamber checks, and its low flash propellant won’t detract from your ability to fire fast and accurate follow-up shots.

What cops also like about this cartridge is its bullet’s ability to inflict great damage. Its 230 grain projectile sports a jacket made from cartridge brass rather than copper alloy, so its able to easily penetrate medium barriers and release superior energy downrange. The bullet further features spiral cut notches around the brim of its wide hollow point which enable it to expand significantly, maximizing damage while limiting the chance of hazardous overpenetration occurring.
