I have found that Golden Sabers are likely to be more accurate than other JHP bullet designs, particularly in Glocks or other polygonal rifled barrels. I think the reason is that because of the harder jacket, there is a "driving band" at the rear of the bullet that engages the rifling and the front part that would normally engage the rifling is "land sized" like a pilot area. This design tends to give an initial centering alignment of the bullet to the barrel and reduces the tendency of the bullet to yaw. Yawing is rotation of the nose and base of the bullet around the central axis of the bullet and is generally detremental to accuracy.
