Patrice I just read your post to Wrencher who went off on an effenhiemer
rant about this particular ammo. She said it is consistently pure ****,
and it isn't a new thing. She rarely swears, interesting...

We haven't shot any of the Golden Saber, which according to Wrencher
is good self defense ammo. She invests a lot of time in anything gun
realted. I trust her opinions. She is currently downstairs having "church"
with a Marlin 336 that's jammed up tighter than a tick.

When I completed my practice, I examined all the remaining rounds, and found 3 more cartridges that were set back into the brass (1 of these had significant set-back, & the other 2 were quite extreme. My spouse was watching me practice from afar, and commented that an occasional round would belch a red fireball, and that the rounds were creating a lot of smoke. [I was told that when I was doing a rapid-fire string...I was surrounded by a bunch of little smoke-rings/doughnuts.--The gun cleaned up pretty easily though...so that surprised me, given my spouse's observations.]

I notified my online retailer about the problem, and sent an email to Remington. Hopefully my email will be forwarded to the proper person, there. [Personally, I think they should at least consider a recall.] Quite the potential safety issue/concern here...should someone inadvertently fire one of these defective rounds.--Patrice

[I guess I better go examine those 4 boxes of Remington Golden Saber rounds that I bought for that new Colt compact (.45acp).]

I seem to recall when I did a lot of shooting that Remingtom ammo was so bad that it made WWB seem like premium ammo. That's been a couple of years.

I also giving away remington .22 bulk packs because they wouldn't even fit into the chambers of some of my better guns.



sawgrass, if Wrencher is going biblical on her rifle I'm glad I'm in Iraq!

You're quite welcome. Something else I just remembered about that crap ammo, it fouled my gun worse than any other I've ever seen. I'm glad yours cleaned up easily, I remember mine being a nasty chore.
