I used the 140 grain Remington core lokts in my 7mm-08 before i started reloading, they group reasonably well and i didn't have any problems while on the range or hunting. I hunted a number of different animals with the ammo while culling (including one kudu bull) and most bullets retained more than 97 percent of there original weight.
You shouldn't have a problem, try them out on the range and see how they group in your rifle.
What calibre will you be using them in?
Agree with you entirely.Hippo, I have used Remington Core Lokt ammo for ....decades ...........and all have grouped well and kill the wildlife just fine. ............ As long as they group good from your rifle, I don't think you will have any issues.
Sounds like they preformed well for you, 4 Impala and a Warthog. With the head shot scenerio, why would it matter if it took off half of the head? Sorry, I have had great luck using them, and most soft point ammo would have had the same results on a solid bone hit, i.e. skull.What a hunt! Took down 4 Impalla and a wardhog. Not to impressed with the Remington core lokt. Took a head shot and took off half the head. Could reatreave 1 bullet and hals gone.
You were quite close when you were shooting is my bet.More than half the bullet were gone on a Impalla ram. I wanted to take a shot on a wildebees but do not think the bullet could do it???
35 Bore.Hippo, I have used Remington Core Lokt ammo for well over 2 decades and have taken quite a few animals. I am sure you will have the "nay sayers" respond to your post, but I am all for the way the Core Lokt preform. I have used them in 243, 6mm rem, 270, 30-06, 35Whelen, 338 win mag, 300 win mag and all have grouped well and kill the wildlife just fine. My son uses my 6mm Rem and he has taken 4 Whitetail with it ALL one shot kills. As long as they group good from your rifle, I don't think you will have any issues.
