Remington’s high-performance Golden Saber line uses hollow point bullets with a cartridge-quality brass jacket. Brass jackets are thicker and stiffer than copper gilding, which helps the bullet feed smoothly and retain weight on impact. This weight retention allows the bullet to penetrate deeper, while the hollow point and spiral nose cuts induce controlled expansion, giving you the best of both worlds (ballistically speaking).
Introduced in 1934, the .357 S&W Magnum is the cartridge that started the “magnum era”. Developed in response to Colt’s .38 Super round, the .357 Magnum is based in large part on Elmer Keith’s handloads for the .38 Special cartridge. Loading it to high pressures allowed it to reach speeds that penetrated automobile bodies and early bulletproof vests, a trait that made it popular with Gangster-era law enforcement.
