New from Remington: Golden Saber Black Belt 45 Auto
Jon Stokes 05.16.18
Remington’s new .45 flavor of Golden Saber Black Belt is out. I carry the regular Golden Saber 9mm in my P239, and have seen what it can do in gel tests. The name is a little cheesy, but the results aren’t. Anyway, press release, below:
Huntsville, AL – Engineered in conjunction with law enforcement professionals, for law enforcement professionals, the new Golden Saber Black Belt load is now shipping in 9mm Luger, 40 S&W and 45 Auto.
In tests measuring terminal performance through ordnance gelatin as well as ordnance gelatin with additional barriers such as heavy clothing, steel, wall board, auto lass and plywood, Remington Golden Saber Black Belt ammunition is a top performer in head-to-head testing. At the heart of the new line of ammunition is the ground-breaking Black Belt bullet—developed utilizing the stringent FBI Barrier Test Protocol for optimal performance.
Like the venerable Golden Saber, the Black Belt bullet is constructed of a brass jacket and hollow point cavity with spiral nose cuts. Additionally, this new product features the innovative Mechani-Lokt™ belt and hourglass shape that firmly locks the core and jacket together at the mid- and rear sections. A double measure to prevent core and jacket separation for high weight retention and predictable penetration even when encountering the toughest barriers. These key characteristics collectively provide consistent expansion, penetration and weight retention for absolute predictable terminal performance. Finally, the driving band located at the rear of the bullet insures proper alignment in the bore for maximum accuracy.
Additional benefits and features of Golden Saber Black Belt ammunition include:
- Optimized primer for consistent ignition and reduced muzzle flash
- Corrosion resistant nickel-plated cases for reliable feed and function
- Flash suppressed powder for minimal muzzle flash
- Waterproof seal at neck and primer pocket for added reliability
Initial offerings include loads for 9mm Luger (standard and +P), 40 S&W and 45 Auto cartridges.
