    Thinking about giving them a try. They seem reasonably priced. How do they fly? What kind of terminal performance do they give?

    Have had good luck in both my .243 (100 grain) and .280 Remington (150s) with Rems CoreLokt bullet. Much prefer it to some BT style bullets since they hold together better and don't shed their jacket as easily.

    Good accuracy in all rifles I've shot them in. Great terminal performance. I've killed 15 or 16 deer with them over the years and they've all been DRT or within 20 yards.

    I can usually keep a 1.5" group at 100 yards with 180gr .30-06 core-lokt from my 7600. I can not tell you how it performs on game, because I use fusion ammo because it is a little more accurate and I got some very cheap.

    skinitis is when your watchin the feeder & lookin thru the scope sizing up which deer to shoot ,then you start thinkin about its late ,cold, rainin& no body to call to help skin a deer rite fast like so you reach up with your thumb & push the safety back on or let the hammer down easy,thats skinitis& the fact i hurt more since im older!!!!
    ive got 2 girls thatll help but i have to kill the unstinkable onesLOL!!!

    Put a lot of deer, elk , and some antelope meat in the freezer with 150 gr, Core-Lokts out of a '06. Accuracy is fine and terminal is better than some so called Premium bullets.

    Core-Lokts have become a standard hunting bullet. Remington says they're the original controlled expansion bullet. They work well.
    "...skinitis..." I'd have said it's enormous amount of work involved in getting a deer ready to butcher, but I didn't invent the term. Skinitis gets worse if you're thinking in terms of a head mount.

    Core-Lokt bullets are one of the oldest and still one of the best high performance bullets out there. Great for deer. Nothing kills any better than the time proven Remington Core-Lokt and Nolser Partition bullets, despite all the new stuff. Those bullets just plain work.

    CoreLokts have probably killed more deer than all the 'premium' bullets combined. The factory CoreLokts shoot well in most of my rifles. In the one rifle that doesn't like CoreLokts, the Winchester PowerPoints do well and I think they are about the same bullet design/construction.

    You can get smaller groups with custom handloads and better bullets but dead is dead. If they group well in your rifle, use 'em.

    I have used Core-Lokts all of my life in various calibers.
    I really liked the 180 gr. round nosed in my .30-06 and have taken over 30 PA. whitetail bucks with the bullet.
    Sadly, for whatever reason, this particular bullet is no longer available to re-loaders.
    However, this past season, I used the pointed version of this bullet with very good results as my buddy and my grandson accounted for three beanfield bucks with three shots.
    Deer dropped in their tracks , good bullet expansion, SHORTEST shot, 150 yds.

    Core-lokt

    ;)Great bullet.It's been used for over 60 years to take game all over the globe.
    :DReal performance without any of the hype or high cost of the latest and greatest "Ultra Whiz Bang Knock Em Dead Super Z Max" hype.:scrutiny:
