Remington announced its Golden Saber Black Belt ammunition in .45 ACP is now officially shipping to consumers.
The 230-grain .45 ACP offering joins the company’s 9mm Luger and .40 S&W Golden Saber Black Belt calibers. The ammunition features Remington’s Black Belt bullet constructed of a brass jacket and hollow point cavity with spiral nose cuts. The design is topped off with a Mechani-Lockt belt and hourglass shape. The Mechani-Lokt prevents the core and jacket from separating and results in a more predictable penetration, according to Remington.
“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,” Remington said in a news release. “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.”
The 9mm comes in standard and +P while the .40 S&W and .45 ACP are offered in standard loads. Remington’s Golden Saber Black Belt ammunition is shipping to dealers now with a MSRP of $24.
