Choosing the right defensive ammunition is an important process. The defensive loads you use in your carry gun must be reliable, offer good weight retention, expand significantly, and create a threat-stopping wound cavity. Remington’s Golden Saber line of ammunition has been recognized as a solid performer for years, and the line has expanded to include a 10mm load.
Joel Hodgdon, Remington’s Director of Marketing, made a statement about the latest addition to the company’s ammunition line:
Adding 10mm to our Golden Saber line is exciting and it allows us to bring another great personal defense product to self-defenders and concealed carriers nationwide. We have a defensive load for everyone, and the three offerings in this caliber give 10mm fans a leading option.

Remington released the following information about their Golden Saber Bonded and Defense 10mm:
Formerly a law enforcement only product, Golden Saber is now available to the public. The ultimate in defensive and tactical handgun ammunition, the 10mm AUTO Golden Saber Bonded rounds offer the same features as other products within the Golden Saber Bonded family.
The Golden Saber Defense and Golden Saber Defense Compact 10mm AUTO rounds are non-bonded, budget friendly options that carry many of the same features that make Golden Saber an icon in the personal defense handgun market. Golden Saber Defense Compact is optimized for peak performance in compact or micro-compact pistols and handguns.
Regarding the difference between Golden Saber Bonded and Golden Saber Defense, both of which will now include 10mm offerings, Remington said:
Improving on trusted Golden Saber, Golden Saber Bonded’s reduced bullet nose diameter, optimized jacket thickness, and Remington bonded-bullet manufacturing process produces unmatched expansion, weight-retention and barrier-blind performance to keep you safe.
Ammunition will be available as three different load options:
- Golden Saber Bonded 10mm 180 grain Jacketed Hollow Point, Bonded
- Golden Saber Defense 10mm 180 grain Jacketed Hollow Point
- Golden Saber Defense Compact 10mm 180 grain Jacketed Hollow Point
One of the great things about the Golden Saber line is their superior weight retention and consistent performance. Regardless of caliber, Remington’s Golden Saber Defense and Bonded lines have been proven as smart options for self-defense for years. Design and dedication to quality matter quite a bit when it comes to defensive ammunition. Make sure you choose your 10mm loads carefully and take the time to practice with them so you’re familiar with the ammunition’s felt recoil and shot placement.
