Sometimes what you experienced is a twist-rate problem, and sometimes in rarer instances it's due to various ammunition makers using slightly different diameter bullets, with your rifle liking the less commonly used diameter. I have a .308 that reacts to different brands that way.
Federal makes a .280 Remington in a 150 grain load that uses Nosler Partition bullets, and they also make a trophy bonded load in 140 grain.
Heck yes that core lock will drop a bear. What you may consider though is rapid expansion and fragmentation from that round when you shoot a deer with it.
Probably OK with a broadside shot, but you could be looking at some meat loss with other angles.
