On the right samD

I was thinking it was a Remington Gold Saber?

I agree

Look at the angle of the skivs on the jacket.

I like the middle one

The way it mushroomed out. Looks like it would cause considerable damage.

Federal?

I am guessing the one far left is federal? Due to silver casing?

yup

It's a golden saber, good round but i'll stick to the Federal hydra shock . It's a bad mfer. It's sole purpose is to inflickt maximum damage. I carry it in 185 or 220 grain 45acp depending on what i can get when it's time to buy new ones. Couldn't find any this last time i rotated them out so i'm carrying winchester's

Hydra-Shok

I like them too. That's all I use (for serious things) in my .45. I use the 230 gr. I've found that CCI Blazer aluminum cased 230 gr FMJ's shoot to the same point of impact, so that's something cheaper to practice with. Also, I'm lucky that there's a commercial reloader about 15 miles north of me that loads 230 gr RN lead to the same velocity as the Hydra-Shoks, & his stuff is way cheaper to practice with. He uses Bullseye, so they burn very clean. I have to be sure to use a bore light to make sure I've cleaned the bore completely, but that's fine. I have a Charter Bulldog .44 Special, but Federal doesn't sell Hydra-Shok in that caliber. I'm going to talk to the reloader about using some 240 gr lead SWCHP's loaded to around 800-850 fps for that. I don't believe that Federal sells Hydra-Shok bullets by themselves. If anyone here can tell me that they do, I'll buy a lot of them for the reloader to use for me.
