The cartridges found in each box of Remington Golden Saber .40 S&W ammunition begin with a hollow point projectile as its foundation. What Remington calls their high performance jacketed projectile builds upon the hollow point design with a spiral nose-cut feature that permits mushrooming at lower velocities without sacrificing penetration or terminal performance. This unique projectile is paired with a nickel-plated case that provides for reliable feeding, functioning and extraction. The end result is match-grade accuracy, deep penetration, maximum expansion and near 100 percent weight retention.
As noted, each box of Remington Golden Saber .40 S&W ammunition contains 25 non-corrosive, nickel-plated cartridges. Each cartridge is loaded with the aforementioned 165 gr high performance jacketed projectile, which provides for both superior terminal ballistics and increased muzzle velocities. In fact, this particular load is capable of producing muzzle velocities that have been observed to travel at speed of up to 1,150 fps.

While this load is a bit pricey for target shooting and general plinking I do keep it in the magazines of some of my 40's that I use for personal protection
The 165gr bullet gives it higher velocity but more importantly shoots considerably flatter making a first round hit much easier! When your life depends on it you really want and need ammo that is going to hit your target on the first shot since you may not get a second if you miss.
With the Golden Sabre Bullet after that first round hit you won't likely need a second due to the bullets performance.
Overall for personal protection this is one of Remingtons better loads
