    Just bought some Remington Golden Saber 124 grain JHP and question

    I bought four boxes of 25 rounds each, in three of the boxes the bullet jacket looks the same, the jacket is bright and new looking. In the last box, the jacket looks alot darker and duller. Is this normal? Will it change the performance of the bullet and has anyone seen differences in boxes of bullets like this before?

    Nope. It's probably just been sitting on the shelf a little longer. No need to worry... as long as the ammo stays dry and hasn't been exposed to huge temperature extremes, it'll keep a very long time.

    The jackets on the bullets are brass, and brass tarnishes with time.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    OK, thanks, I guess it makes sense that the one box is older than the rest. So it is just exposure to air over time? They didn't get wet I hope. I'll try to post a picture so you can see the difference. I'm going to shoot that box anyway and keep the others for carry in the Ruger 9mm.

    I wouldn't worry if they got wet. Remington seals the case neck with something that looks like tar ant puts laquer on the primers. I've fired ammo thats gone through the washer and dryer.

    Mine have the same tarnish. The manufacturer told me that happens when people handle the bullets and don't wipe them off. It's just a little tarnish. Now worries mate. :-)

    Good to go; you'd know from the appearance of the box if they got wet.

    Happens to my carry ammo all the time. Once they sit around in the mag a month or four I fire them off and load up fresh ones.

    I haven't rotated my ammo since I loaded my mags.

    The only reason to do that is just to occasionally shoot the carry ammo. There's no other real reason to rotate ammo; ammo does not deteriorate or "go bad". I have ammo that I loaded in the 70's and 80's that shoots just the same as the stuff I loaded this summer.

    You probably won't have any trouble feeding it to a Ruger.
    My Belgian Browning Hi-Power, now, is a fussy girl ... she won't feed Golden Saber 124's at all.
    OAL is too long.
    The Browning is the only one that ever, ever gave me that problem with that otherwise excellent ammo.

    I fire them off just to keep a feel for my carry ammo. That and it's fun to shoot milk hugs full of water with hollow points.
