    Yes I use them as my primary self defense rounds for off duty carry. They feed reliably and numerous test results show them to expand 98% of the time and leave a nice hole. Get em if you can.

    Alot of guys from my job carry 124+p as we use the same weight and pressure for our on duty guns.

    I have not tried the 124gr +p, but I use the 147gr standard pressure. I like the heavier round for the penetration. I use um in my G26 and the 124gr +p Gold dots in my Kahr CW9.

    I like those too, BUT, a little hefty in a Kel-Tec.

    well, i just tried the load on Saturday at the range......

    VERY GOOD ROUND.....zero muzzle flash......whats kinda cools is when you touch one off there are "sparks" coming out of the barrel, kinda looks like tracer rounds...LOL

    but very accurate and controllable round....its my carry round now

    Good call - very accurate, controllable, and never fails to feed in anything I own.

    I just got a box of 50 of the Golden Saber 124 +P from Ammo To Go.
    Will function test it this weekend and hopefully use it as my EDC ammo. I've used the 124 standard load in the past with satisfactory results so I expect this to be good stuff.

    I have not tried it.

    But, one awesome thing about the Golden Sabers, which HST, TAP/XTP, Gold Dot don't offer is complete waterproofing. Golden Sabers are sealed with a light coat of asphalt sealant where the cartridge rim meets the base of the bullet, and they apply a lacquer around the primer; Ranger T-series, Bonded, and PDX also have lacquer-sealed primers, but do not have sealed cartridge rims.

    It's not really that big of a deal, as modern powder usually burns just fine if wet, and only causes about a 5% to 10% drop in muzzle velocity of the projectile, but still, I think it's cool. What if you're stuck outside for a prolonged period and can't get dry?

    Properly assembled ammo is watertight. You can throw ammo in a bucket of water and leave it there for a couple of days and it will have zero effect upon modern ammo - whether the primers and bullet are sealed or not. Done it several time to convince the skeptics. Modern ammo simply isn't as fragile as the Internet myths make it out to be.

    The only real use for sealants is for ammo stored for months (or years) under widely varying temperatures and humidities the average civilian will never encounter.

    Seriously, Rik? I think I read in Guns and Ammo, that ammo soaked for 1 hour underwater lost some velocity and energy. I'll see if I can hunt it up, so you can read it. Maybe it's total bunk!

    I use it in my Stainless II. It feeds well in ammo specific pistols like a 1911. The 185 & 185+P are what I carry. They are very accurate.

    Doesn't jibe with my experience, but I learned a long time ago not to believer everything in gun magazines - or on the Internet. :)
