Rem UHD .45 acp

Nobody responded to my question in another thread about Remington ultimate home defense .45 acp 230 gr BJHP, so I shot some.

Ammo looks as good as any other SD ammo. Shoots as well as any other ammo in this category, energy transfer is, also, about the same as other premium SD ammo except for one.

The bullet expands well and is explosive when hitting a water filled jug, but, does make an enlarged exit hole instead of looking like a hammer made the exit.

The recoil was a bit more than a WWB target rnd.

Is it the answer to all SD use, no, it is; however, another useful rnd to be considered by anyone having issues finding the right ammo for their handgun.

    Sounds like a good one to consider.

    Ned, a possible reason no one answered could be that they've never heard of that ammo. I know that's why I didn't.
    From your description, it sounds like an updated/rebranded Golden Sabre :uhm:

    Is that the one labeled as a BJHP? NOT what you're thinking. Brass Jacketed Hollow Point.

    At one point I bought some Remington +P+ HP ammo marked LE only !!!

    I was really impressed on how it performed out of a S&W 645, when I fired it the first time the backwash of the muzzle blast was akin to being lightly swatted on the nose with a rolled up newspaper.

    My Dad had a ND with that S&W 645, the bullet went through his closet door, passed through most of his suits, through a lathe and plaster wall, and passed through My closet missing my clothes / uniforms, then lodged in the far lathe and plaster wall.

    Yes, but, it still in a picture looks like a golden sabre.

    Golden Sabre is a brass jacketed hollow point.
    Overkill is underrated.

    So then you say they should look the same? :uhm:

    Yep.

    Scuttlebutt on other internet forums is that the UHD is just repackaged Golden Saber.
    Overkill is underrated.

    Well, I did get favorable results with the new age Golden Sabre by what ever name.
