Remington Golden Saber ammunition has been around for a great many years. The Golden Saber Bonded line, tested here, is a less common variant that Remington markets to LE agencies. Packed in 50 round boxes, the bonded line is available in all the popular service calibers and several bullet weights.

Remington describes the Golden Saber Bonded, and the core to jacket bonding process as follows: “Through an exclusive Remington process, the lead core is hot-bonded to the brass jacket. The result is exceptional weight retention – up to 97% when fire [sic] through automobile glass – while maintaining phenomenal terminal performance when shot through heavy clothing or into bare gelatin. And the bonding process does not cause a reduction in accuracy performance – jacket and core concentricity and resulting gyroscopic balance has been maintained to deliver match-grade accuracy.”
