Remington Core-Lokt Centerfire Rifle Ammo
I was very surprised to see BassPro had these in stock and quickly made the purchase. Did everything over the phone. My box arrived in record time. all 5 boxes purchased were in great shape and same lot stamp. I have used only one box and scope is dialed in for this season. I now have 4 boxes to last for several years. Scope mounting hardware was an issue. after new installed on 4 shots and everything was dead on. I have always purchased Remington for all my guns and will continue to do so. Clean shooting, accurate and nock down deadly on whitetails!

not comparable to 180gr. corelkt
After 3-shots at a little over 50yds. out of dad's old '59 30-06 REM sprgfld. hit. with-in 11/2 in of bulls-eye with 180gr, standard(wicked) loads. 3 shots fired with 125gr. recoil-managed loads were all 6-10in. high and off wind-age 3-4in. right.
Pity, because it took alot of talking for him (83 yrs. young) to try them. I believe that the twist torque out of the old barrel does play a factor even if bullet speed is the same or comparable.
Too bad because his shoulder is always blue although he still enjoys it. Hah

I shoot these in my .270 and have killed 3 moose using the 150 grain bullets and more deer than I can remember with the 130 grain bullets. On two of the moose I broke both shoulders. I consider the 130 grain bullets to be nearly perfect deer bullets, At .270 win velocities they open quickly for quick kills but hold together well enough to get good penetration when its needed.
I would give them 5 stars but they only make round nose 150 grain bullets for the .270. I cant quite wrap my head around their logic there??

I have been using Remington Core-Lokt'd ammunition for well over 30 years...season after season....on all kinds of medium to big game...from Western Black Tail, Mule Deer, Antelope, Elk, Bear & Boar to Northern & Midwestern Whitetail...in calibers from .243 through the 30 caliber magnums.......from extreme cold to extreme heat and NEVER had a failure to function as designed of any kind.
If YOU do your part....they will always do what they are designed to do...! No NEED for anything else!
