I shoot a Remington 150 grain Core-Lokt out of my .30-06. I have been reading a lot of bad press lately on the Core-Lokt's but they have worked just fine for me. I have fired my '06 ten times at game and have killed nine deer and one coyote. The range varied from 25 to 125 yards. The coyote and some of the deer dropped where they stood. Some of the deer ran after being shot but none more than 100 yards. And all were dead by the time I got to them.

Unless and until they fail to do the job for me, I will stick with the Core-Lokt's.

I was testing out some 7.62x54r loads the other day and the Hornady Interlocks shot a bit better than the Sierra Prohunters. I also use Hornady bullets in my 223 loads.

Depends on the caliber and the game you're hunting. Deer don't need a super premium bullet, and the Core-Lokt's or Interlocks work just fine. For bear I use Nosler Partitions or Kodiak Bonded bullets.

OH DARN! Did I leave something out of that sentence??? I said this in another thread here, you just can't go wrong with Remington Core-Lokt's when shooting whitetail. They're relatively cheep and the deer drop. What else do you need???
