.230gr JHP 6.6 grN340 Unknown1.258" CCI LP guest
For Anyone needing info on reloading Remington Golden Sabers, here you go. Powder used was 6.6 of Vihtavuori N340. 6.6 works best for me in my 1911s any higher caused loss of accuracy and any lower gave the same results. surprisingly accurate for a HP, almost match grade accuracy. The Bullets used were the Bonded version of golden sabers *BJHP* as they are rumored to do the best for the job they are intended for. Recommended Starting Grains 6.2 Max 6.8

This is a moderately hot but VERY accurate load in a Ruger P90. The bullet is copper plated not lead but about the same hardness. Suggested starting load is 5.0 grains of Bullseye with Federal case. DO NOT substitute other components or primers/bullets/powders!! Seated so the shoulder just shows with a moderate taper-crimp. 1" groups at 50 feet bench rest

185gr TMJ 6.0 grBullseye Unknown CCI LP guest
This is an extremely accurate loading. I used Berry’s preferred PLATED bullets not jacketed with a moderately gentle taper-crimp. Ragged 3/4" hole at 25 feet 2-handed braced. A little hot if you are in timed or rapid-fire competition, you might need practice to re-acquire target.

Using a long nose H&G profile LSWC, will feed reliably from 1.230" to 1.265" OAL in my Springfield 1911. Fine tune OAL to fine tune accuracy. Burns fairly clean, gun functions fine w/ standard recoil spring and is a great practice round.

Bullet is the Ranier Copper plated 185gr FP. Accuracy was excellent for a practice IDPA round. 100% reliable in unmodified Springfield Armory 1911. Recoil was brisk without being punishing.

This is a low-recoil, low velocity round. It averaged 705 to 710 fps. I have fired 100s of rounds on the indoor Combat range at St. Joseph (Missouri) Total Range using both Rainier’s jacketed flatnose and hollowpoint 200-grain bullet. 3.5grains resulted in 100% function in my Glock 30, but the empties seemed to fall between me and the pistol. With 3.6 grains, ejection was adequately forceful. As for the primers, the only large pistol primers at my dealer’s were the Winchester Magnum Large Pistol primers and that is what I worked the load up with. I have found that I need to keep the firing pin clean as well as the slide where the firing pin rides and where it penetrates to the primer. Negelect here caused misfires due to striking residue and softening the blow to the primer.

This is a load I found originally marked for a S&W 25-2 revolver. Since it was well within SAAMI specs for pressure, I tried it in an HK USP 45 and is a great load for bowling pin shoots. Pressure is rated at 20,100. I use Sierra 240 grain JHC bullets.
