    My rifle shoots the the same. Power shocks are cheaper. It's deer and hog ammo which I have always used remington for. Advice

    I have a .308 that shoots both of those to the same point of aim and impact.
    The power shocks are my preference although my brother claims he has had two bullet failures with them in his .243 and 30-06.
    He uses Winchester Power Points now.
    I once had a CoreLokt in .270 fail.
    These are all cup and core bullets and do occaisionally seperate from the jacket and fail.
    Oddly in all cases refrenced above the deer all died.
    The good thing is both are good and if you have problems finding one you can always buy the other with no worries of the shot not being the same.

    To me the cup and core bullet is like a pick up truck. There is better stuff out there for a specific application but it does most things just fine.

    The difference in the PowerShock and CorLokt is like Ford and Chevy. Pick one and go.

    I prefer Cor-loks, but I've seen both, Power Shocks and Cor-loks fail...
