We test fired five rounds of 9mm Luger (9x19) Remington 147 gr Golden Saber into synthetic ballistic gelatin to observe its expansion and penetration characteristics. The ammo was fired from a Smith & Wesson M&P9C 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 9mm Luger (9x19) loads.

Golden Saber Jams in Springfield XD Mod2
Review by MarkER
Tried multiple mags and many times.. The golden Saber works in my glock 26 but fails miserably to feed in my Springfield XD Mod2.

"10 out of 10, would buy again"
Review by Self Defence Guru
Golden sabers have been repetively proven as the best hollow point round for self defense. I hope and pray I never have to use a single round, but should I need to, I'm confidently trusting my life and my family's lives on these rounds. Lucky Gunner has the best price for these rounds and one of the only places I could find them in stock!

Great Value HD Ammo
Review by Tallen
I used LuckyGunner's ballistic gelatin test to select an affordable 9mm HD round with good expansion. Between 147gn Rem Golden Saber and 115gn Speer Gold Dot, they both grouped well at 7yds. The Golden Saber grouped slightly better for me so that is what I will keep in stock.

Economical quality self defense round
Review by SEB
This round is very accurate and consistent in all my 9mm pistols. It functions great. I know I can count on this round. My tests show it exceeds many other rounds.

Review by Preacher
Works great in my Kimber Solo. No jams and surprised that the kick is not bad at all. Tried another 2 brands in my Kimber and it was jam city.

my 9mm requires hotter than average
Review by Tom
i must use a hotter round in my Kimber and Uzi pistol to cycle properly, otherwise I get stove pipes and this ammo fills the bill. Accurate , cost effective deadly.

You can't beat the price for quality shells. And Lucky gunner is always fast on the shipments.
Review by Whitetail
These 9mm - 147 gr JHP - Remington Golden Saber work better im my Kimber Solo than any other brand.
No jams or misfires so far and you can't beat the price.

Good bang for your buck, literally
Review by LED
I generally like heavy ammo for each caliber and this one does the trick, borderline subsonic round with breath punch for home defense

Using for home defense
Review by Ty
Do not know if they fire well or not. At the price I will not fire them at the range, saving them for what they are intended for, home defense.

Heard good things, my gun didn't like it
Review by Jim
I hane a Taurus 24/7 Gen 2. While I heard a lot of good things about this ammo my gun didn't like it much. Out of the 25 I had 3 mis-fires and it jammed my gun 4 times. I have since put a couple of hundred rounds of another brand through the gun without a problem.
Good price and it shipped fast.... Just not for my Taurus.

All's well with this ammo
Review by Jerry
I used this ammo in my brand new XD9 service model and there wasn't any problems.
Prior to purchasing this ammo I called Springfield Armory to find out which grain to use with this particular gun and they said 147 is the correct ammo. And they were correct.

My favorite 9mm!
Review by TacticalSwaag
Love shooting 147gr 9mm, it lets you know it means business when you shoot it, and for me it is easier to keep on target in semi-rapid fire situations compared to a 124gr +P round. Accuracy is also fantastic!
