Brass jacketed hollowpoint is what I understood it to mean. That is the marking on my last box of standard golden saber. The "bonded" variety has a different designation.
My understanding on the HTP is its the classic line that came in the green and yellow box. Better than UMC but as you said not cream of the crop.
"The 1911 was the design, given by God to us through John M. Browning, that represents the epitome of what a killing tool needs to be. It was true in 1911 and it's true now." - Col. Robert Coates commanding, U.S. Marine Corp Special Operations Command Detachment 1 (DET 1)
