Remington® Whitetail Pro® Core-Lokt® Centerfire Rifle Ammo
I recently purchase two boxes of this ammo for my wife's new H&R Youth .243 single shot... The group of this ammo was sparatic at 100 yrs.. I shot 20 rounds and 5 rounds were mis-fires.. The center primer was well dippled however, the round did not fire.. I even attempted to spin the round and strike it again to no avail... I don't think that I am going to let my wife hunt with this ammo due to its unpredicability.. Her luck would be a buck of a life time opportunity and all she would get is a click from the mis-fire... I will continue to use Remington Ammo, I just haven't decided which type..

Overall these are fairly decent rounds for my Remington model 78, 30-06. I have two problems with them. First of all they are extremely dirty. Also accuracy is so-so. I am not sure why but I get huge groups with these rounds. I bought a box of the Hornady super performance 30-06 rounds and shot both on the same day. With the Core-Lokt rounds I had a group at around 2 inches at 100 yds. the Hornadys' I had all of the holes touching. On a positive note I have taken 3 deer with these, but not all of them took just one shot to go down. If you want something that is cheap,and with decent take down I would get these, but if you are more of a serious hunter and need accuracy at long range I'd stick with Hornady.

Excellent 30-30 rounds
I purchased some 150 gr. Remington Whitetail Pro Core-Lokt and I am very satisfied with them. They are just as accurate as you would expect from at any 30-30 round.

I have hunted with Remington Core-Lokt for over 20 years. Always get excellent results, one shot stop. Excellent penetration and expansion.
