Remington® Whitetail Pro® Core-Lokt® Centerfire Rifle Ammo
Remington Core-Lokt ammunition was the first and original controlled expansion bullet and remains the standard of big-game bullet performance. Its level of reliability is only exceeded by the amount of game it has taken over the years. These cartridges feature the PSP (pointed soft point) Core-Lokt bullets. The Remington Core-Lokt design locks the progressively heavier jacket mid-section to the lead core, preventing separation, yet allowing maximum energy transfer. The result is a bullet that stays together on impact, expands in a controlled manner, and mushrooms uniformly to nearly twice the original diameter. 20 rounds per box.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Fever1955 Core-Lokt ammo I have hunted with Remington Core-Lokt for over 20 years. Always get excellent results, one shot stop. Excellent penetration and expansion. March 11, 2008
Rated 5 out of 5 by rcpd807 Great round with dropping power I was looking for a great deer hunting round for my Remington semi auto .270. I was experiencing misfeeds with Winchester ammo. After reading other reviews of this ammo, I decided to try it. Two days after getting a box, a shot a 160 lb doe that dropped right where she stood. I then shot another doe that was with her and she dropped within 20 yards. Based on my first two kills, I have to say that this load is great and I recommend it highly. December 23, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by sitruc White Tail Magic I use the .270 PSP 130 grain and it will group at 2 inches at 200 yards. With good shot placement it is whitetail magic and my last two deer dropped right in their tracks at about 150 yards. If you want excellent performance this is the ticket, you won't be disappointed with this round. November 24, 2007
Rated 5 out of 5 by Bahamaroot Excellent Round Just recently switched to this bullet from Winchester Super X. I LOVE this bullet! much more accurate than the Super X and has plenty of knock down power. I shoot a .30-30 lever action with open sights. November 3, 2007

A:Remington's Core-Lockt bullets are basically the same. IMHO I believe that the difference between the Express Core-Lockt and the Whitetail Pro Core-Lockt is the box, and about $1-$1.50 in price. I do know my Mossberg 100 ATR will put a 5-shot group within 1" at 100 yards with the Remington Express Core-Lockt 165gr PSP rounds. Either way, it's a Core-Lockt and the only Core-Lockt I know of that is more of a "premium" bullet is the Core-Lockt Ultra Bonded which is about $7-$8 per box more than the others. Hope this helps.

I think I ran out of bullets when firing this group since it only had 4 shots.

A:This is just a different box for marketing purposes. The rounds are identical.
A:To help introduce new hunters to Rem Center Fire Cartridge for whitetail deer
Maybe although I havent re-verified, to offer more PSP (pointed soft point) loads in Rem line.
To take up more shelf space for Remington Brand.
To get peopke to ask questions.
btw I would never buy ammo for a present for anyone unless they specified exactly what. It cannot be returned. A gift certificate is much better
( and more sensible).
Details:iv heard from friends that when loading a model 94 that when pushing another round into the tube mag it has set off the round in front by sparking the primer cap is this true or has it actuallly happened
A:With tubular magazines you need to use ammunition that has a projectile with a blunt or rounded tip. In most cases I've heard of, it was during the rifle's recoil that a pointed or spitzer type bullet would strike the primer of the forward round causing it to ignite.
A:I have a model 94 that has been shot a lot over the years. I have never had a round discharge while loading it, using many types of ammunition, including Rem Corelok. I have heard the stories over the years too but have never seen it happen and don't know anyone that it has actually happened too. I feel safe when loading mine.
A:Just to be safe I would ask a trained gunsmith, or contact the manufacture. However, most likely that is a myth, two reasons I am saying this first of all the primer takes alot of force to ignite and I believe all of the core-lokts have an exposed lead tip to them, which allows for some space to be compacted taking off some of the pressure from the primer. Also I have a friend who has been hunting with them who uses a pump action 30-06 which is tube fed much like the model 94 and he has never had any problems with them in over 20 yrs.
(again I would not just rely on my opinion ask a gunsmith/manufacturer)
Details:Can Remington® Whitetail Pro® Core-Lokt® Centerfire Rifle Ammo be used in a Winchester Model 94 Legacy 30-30 lever action rifle?
The shoulders seems larger and the neck and bullet a bit smaller that the ammo I have used in the past plus the tip of the bullet is more rounded where the ones I have used in the past were flat .
A:Yes it is compatable. All ammo produced is made to SAAMI specs and standard no matter who is making the ammo or who made the gun. Every gun does have its own personality on what ammo its likes and will shoot accurately but all ammo in the chambering of your rifle (30-30) should be safe to shoot.
A:I can't say for sure. I have a 7mm-08 in both a Remington 788 and a Winchester model 70. I also noticed the difference between Winchester and Remington ammo. In my rifles. It pays to stick with the manufactors ammo. The model 70 averages 3" groups with Remington ammo. It will shoot 1 1/2 inches with Winchester ammo. No need for high dollar ammo for deer. Both rounds will kill them. Right now!
