    How Good?

    Probably as good as any.

    Ammunition from the major makers is all highly engineered and carefully assembled. They have different types of bullets, based on slightly different theories of how bullets should work and technologies, but I have serious reservations that any one brand or type is better or worse to any serious degree. Now, some types of ammunition and some individual guns may not cooperate - which is not a reflection on the gun or the ammo. So one should test fire various types to make sure it functions in the gun in question.

    After making sure it functions, I generally decide on cost. Or sometimes the cool factor.

    I think that brand is a lower end golden sabre. The bullet looks the same. And golden sabres are some pretty good bullets.

    A few hours ago I watched the Hickock45 review on the Judge and he had used some of that ammo in 410.

    It seems that some state that the Ultimate Home Defense ammo is re-branded Golden Sabers.....I have not been able to verify this.
    Does anyone know if this is true?

    Nope, sorry. I never heard of it or seen it until that Hickock review and now.

    I can't prove it but I believe you are correct about this. I believe they are just Golden Sabers that are being marketed with more of a "home defense" emphasis. A non ammo example of this is Excedrine Migraine, which is exactly the same as regular Excedrine.

    I just buy LE Gold Dot ammo in the 50 round boxes,it's a lot cheaper and just as good if not better than the 20 round boxes of SD ammo aimed at the civilian market where they charge at least $1.00 per round

    It appears to be the Ultimate

    ...but that's based on the packaging.

    Looks like Golden Sabers to me too - which are a good bullet.

    I agree with you this is the generic brand of Golden Saber---with a fancy box to boot.
