    Remington Golden Saber vs Ultimate Home Defense

    I've shot almost a box of the Ultimate HD ammo, but couldn't get another box, but picked up a box of Golden Sabers. They look identical, and the Remington site lists identical specs on them. Are they the same round marketed and boxed differently?

    Probably a little tweaking on Remington's part...the bullet seems the same so I'll assume they changed a powder recipe.

    For the price difference (around $6 per box of 25), I'd stick with the Golden Sabers.

    I'm thinking it's the same, I did look at the Remington site and pulled up a side by side comparison of the specs on them, and they are identical for energy, velocity, etc. I'll just keep testing em like they are the same, and make sure they run reliable in my gun.

    I've used Golden Sabers for years they are reliable plus your get 25 instead of 20 to a box for most SD ammo.

    Welcome to TaurusArmed.net!

    Golden Sabers have a good "reputation", you get more to the box, and very reasonably priced. I just bought three boxes for my new 24/7 Pro Compact DS .45acp.

    Re: Remington Golden Saber vs Ultimate Home Defense

    I'll agree, it's probably the same load with different marketing. If they changed anything beyond the powder I could see the bullet being tweaked for a different expansion/penetration path. For example, it might be tweaked to expand earlier to reduce the overall penetration as I could see more home defense shoots being unobstructed frontal hits. But most likely, yeah, it's the same thing.

    Golden Sabers are a great self defense round. I too, as others stated above have used them for years. I actually prefer them in my 9mms above any other round.

    Isn't advertising just great!
    buy brand A and it can kill an elephant with 230% expansion.
    Buy brand B and you can stop a charging Rhino with no problems at all!
    buy brand c and it far surpasess the expansion of both brand A & b, but will only stop a 500 pound rhino.
    Buy brand D cause the FBI uses it!
    In reality just pick out a good modern design expanding point projectile and learn to put them on target!
    everything else is pretty much Hype by the manufacture.
    until you actaully must use them and see how well they work all else is just speculation, don;'t matter how long that you have carried them or used them on paper targets.
    make sure they function in YOUR weapon and that it is a modern design.

    So very true, my friend. Too bad so many new (and not-so-new) shooters can't be convinced. Ain't advertising hype wonderful?
