    Are all Remington GS bonded? I'm looking for a 40 CCW load and I'm considering the 165 bullet. I've read where 'older' GS jackets would separate from their core.

    I believe there is a bonded version of the Golden Saber, although I have never personally used it. I believe it says "bonded" in a rather obvious manner across the carton. Otherwise they (the standard Golden Sabers) are not bonded.

    Even still it is a good round, I use it in .45 ACP. That or Hydra-Shoks. Which ever is on sale at the time:D

    There are two different Golden Sabers.

    I didn't realize there are two. This opens up more questions for me. Which one should I use? Any thoughts. Thanks for the input so far.

    The Bonded are a little harder to find, and are favored by law enforcement due to the ability to maintain bullet composition when shooting through intermediate barriers such ans auto windshields, walls, etc.

    I'd shoot bonded if I got a good deal on them, if not, regular Golden Sabers are just fine for me. They are terrificly accurate when used in conjunction with a good firearm, and the concave hollow point is large enough to simulate an ice cream cone flying through the air backwards. Seriously, it's bigger than a Hydra-Shok, IIRC.
