    Remington is Now Shipping Golden Saber Black Belt Ammunition Featuring a New Belted Bullet Design

    Tuesday, April 10th, 2018

    In tests measuring terminal performance through ordinance gelatin as well as ordinance gelatin with additional barriers such as heavy clothing, steel, wall board, glass and plywood, Remington Golden Saber Black Belt ammunition dominated in head-to-head competition. 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
