Is it bullet residue or powder residue from Rem ammo??

Just wondering, are you seeing more powder residue or copper fouling when using Remington core-locks?

More on Bullet Grains

I am looking forward to hunting deer in Arkansas this fall, it's been over 40 years since I hunted. I am very interested in the topic of bullet grains. I always thought "bigger was better" when it came to the weight of the bullet when shooting deer. I shoot a .30-06 and would like to know if there is any siginificant difference between a 150, a 165 or a 180 grain bullet when shooting deer.

very much so. lots of residue and will foul a barrel fast.Had a friend useing them in his rem 700 bdl 30/06 started shooting real bad. took it to a smith and he had to do electrolisis on the barrel due to ammount of copper fouling.cant remember the exact ammount but smith said was enough copper pulled out of barrel to make a penny

Were you using the Cabela's bulk packaged Core-Lokt's? I use them in my Ruger M77 Mk.II 7x57 a lot and have not noticed any fouling out of the ordinary, even during load devlopment shooting sessions.

Copper fouling noticed on the old Barnes bullets

I had loaded the old style Barnes bonded lead core bullets, these were replaced by their solid core x bullets. The old bullets used pure copper for the jacket and did leave alot of fouling. The new style x bullets are using an alloy that isn't suppose to foul like the old one did. I have never loaded Remington Core-locks, when I did shoot factory ammo I didn't notice that they were any worse than others at copper fouling. Again for factory ammo shooters I would be looking at Federal's Fusion line. I don't work for Federal, but I wish I did....
