We test fired five rounds of .45 ACP (Auto) Remington 230 gr Ultimate Defense into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Kahr CW45 pistol at a distance of 10 feet. A four-layer barrier of heavy fabric was placed in front of the gelatin to simulate clothing.
The complete data for this load from our test can be found on the chart below. The photo slider displays the expanded bullets that were retrieved from the gel. Pictured below is a high speed video that shows the bullet entering the gel at approximately 10,000 frames per second. The diagrams at the bottom of the page should give you an idea of how this load compares to other .45 ACP (Auto) loads.

Review by PaMedicTim
Renamed saber or not, these are reliable and accurate at 21' to 35' and closer. Say, in your home or yard shooting. It leaves a nasty permanent cavity, as well as knock down. It does not leave the barrel in a rush, but makes up for it elsewhere. I fired hundreds out of an XD w/o a flaw or hiccup, (fired PPU cheap 230gr also to save $ at range). Save a couple bucks on another? May be, I know these work. I will keep these chambered.
