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

Madison, NC –  Engineered in conjunction with law enforcement professionals, for law enforcement professionals, the new Golden Saber Black Belt load is now available.  GSBB 9mm and 40 S&W offerings are shipping now.

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

Initial offerings include loads for 9mm Luger (standard and +P), 40 S&W and 45 Auto cartridges.

    Did Remington’s editor person get fired in the bankruptcy?

  2. Gerard says:

    Belted bullets huh, sounds like they needed new marketing because no one wanted their ‘Golden Sabre’ ammo. Their new striker pistols are rejects too…

  3. Chuck says:

    When your non-bonded jacketed hollow point so reliably fails to expand and instead just explodes on impact that you have to literally put a zip tie around it to hold it together….

    Remington, almost need to flush everything and restart from scratch.

  5. Mojo Nixon says:

    I have always been skeptical of the brass jacket and wondered if that has anything to do with lack of expansion.

    What is the belt made out of?

    • Tom Burczynski mentioned several possibilities for the belt composition in his five patents. However, two of the patents specifically call out a reinforced polymer belt with an added lubricant. Polymer was preferred over metal alternatives to keep the jacket weight below the 25% of total projectile weight mandated in Federal armor-piercing projectile regulations. Of the various reinforced polymers tested, 30% carbon-filled PEEK and 30% glass-filled ULTEM were considered favorable. While softer than the ULTEM band, the PEEK band would be less abrasive.

    OMG almost Black Talon!!

    So Remington drop all the junk. Make the 870, 1100, Speedmaster .22 and the 700 with pride and quality
