Remington High Terminal Performance?

Did a search, couldn't find anything, and hoping this isn't a repeat thread! Anyway...literally the first box of ammo I could lay hands on when I got my G23 was a box of 180 grain Remington High Terminal Performance JHPs. Lacking better ammo at the time (I now have some Win. PDX1s) I loaded them up in my bedside "nighttime response" mag. The thing is, my google-fu skills have failed me and I can't find much info on them. Anybody know anything about them? Good round? Complete crap? Any info would be appreciated!

If you can't find any info on it, it probably sucks. Remington, old-school, crappy JHP most likely. Don't expect much. If you already have some PDX1s, I would just shoot the HTPs as range ammo.

So far from my research on the 'net, all this is is Rem standard ammo in new boxes. No new JSP or JHP bullet designs at all. It's just like when Rem repackaged their Golden Saber ammo into boxes marketed as "home defense" ammo.

Like others stated, looks like a marketing exercise more than anything else.

However, they are going to include the old 38 spl "FBI Load". Increasing the availability of that classic load is worth some marketing hoo-ha IMO.

I don't know about Remington's .40S&W old school round but I understand the old school Remington 125-grain JHP .357sig performed very well. I kept ten rounds from the boxes I bought back in 2007.

And as mentioned earlier the Golden Saber was repackaged as a "new" round costing $5/box more than the ammo in the Golden Saber box. The Golden Saber may not be a new round but I like it, especially the bonded ones.

If the bullets used in that ammunition are the same as their UMC JHP and Express JHP bullets, the HTP will be fine. The terminal difference between an HST and a UMC JHP when impacting flesh is minimal. None of the "premium" JHP loads will make up for improper shot placement and poor shooting fundamentals. Train with your new pistol. If you can find some "premium" hollow point ammunition at a reasonable price, pick it up. You will be fine with what you currently have.

I knew there was something I liked about you.

The 180-grain Remington generic jhp certainly took the starch out of homicidal assailants in a very workmanlike fashion for the California Highway Patrol in many, many shootings.

The old Remington "Green box" 115 grain JHP in 9mm did well for some NJ agencies as well.

I said this before, even though ammunition is changing all the time, the human body hasn't changed much. What worked well in the past will still work today.

This is worth repeating.

Couldn't agree more. The HTP looks like repackaged express ammunition. I still haven't seen any actual pictures of the rounds.
