Remington Compact Handgun Defense Ammo

Remington logoEd. note: It appears the name of the new ammo may be Ultimate Defense – Compact Handgun.

Remington appears to be ready to launch a new line of ammunition for the concealed carry handgun market according to information obtained by GunsHolstersAndGear.com.  The new Remington Compact Handgun Defense ammo is designed to deliver optimal performance out of small, defensive handguns.  Although the information is deemed to be reliable, there has not been any official announcement from Remington about the ammo.

The new ammunition will use a brass jacketed hollow point similar to those already found in the very successful Golden Saber line of ammo.  Hollowpoint bullets for the Compact Handgun Defense line are likely designed to open more slowly than those loaded in the other lines to give the bullets greater ability to penetrate more deeply.  However, the bullets are still expected to deliver good expansion.

Versa Max Zombie Slayer Shotgun

Had enough of the zombies?  Not yet, I guess, considering The Walking Dead seems to be one of the most popular shows on TV.  Fortunately, Remington introduced the Versa Max Zombie shotgun to help quench the thirst for zombie-related gun gear.

VersaMax Zombie shotgun

The Versa Max is Remington’s newest autoloading shotgun, and in the past couple of years it has become very popular due to its ability to reliably digest all kinds of ammo.  I’ve not had the chance to spend much time with one myself, but a lot of people are giving the Versa Max very positive reviews.  So, what better gun to have in the apocalypse than a 12 gauge, semiautomatic shotgun that is not picky on with what ammo it will run?

Of course, the Zombie slaying shotgun is more about form than function.  Remington just built the form on top of a reliable platform.

Remington 870 Shotgun with Magpul Tactical Accessories

Remington 870 Magpul

In 2012, Magpul announced a line of shotgun accessories, and one year later Remington announced an 870 Express Tactical shotgun with those fixtures as standard features.  The new Remington 870 uses a Magnum SGA buttstock and a MOR fore-end.

The Remington 870 shotgun is extremely popular for self-defense and police work.  I’d venture to say that at least half of the law enforcement agencies in the United States has the 870 as standard equipment in the patrol car.  Likewise the guns are extremely popular with citizens wanting serious firepower to defend their homes.

Remington HyperSonic rifle ammunition promises to “supercharge” centerfire rifle cartridges and deliver up to 200 fps more velocity from standard pressure loads.  Remington states the rounds will deliver “laser-flat trajectories” and more energy on target for better performance.

The nine new loads cover seven of the most popular hunting cartridges, both short and long action rounds.  The rounds are not yet listed on the Remington website, but the details are listed below.

Remington Golden Saber Black Belt Ammo

Remington Black Belt

2013…2014…2015… What’s old is new again.

Remington will show the new Golden Saber Black Belt ammunition at the 2015 SHOT Show. If you think you’ve heard of this information before, you would be correct. They also announced the ammo at the 2014 show…and at the 2013 show.

I don’t think this ammo ever made it into production. I’ve never seen it grace the company’s main website, nor the Remington law enforcement site. I have not seen it for sale anywhere.

Let’s take a look at the latest information on these “new” rounds…
