Just curious as to how many of you have shot these bullets? My brother just put in an order for these in 165 grain .308 caliber going to load some for my .300 wsm. Any thoughts on performance is welcomed thanks.

I bought some 150 grains for my 7mm Rem Mag and it couldn't hold a consistent group to my standards. My model 700 loves core lokt bullets and they do great on deer. Cheap, groups great, and kills them stone dead. You should try them.

Yep core lokts work good on deer I have shot them the last two seasons because that's what was available at the time however I can't get them to group the way I would like as well. They group enough to kill a deer but want to get under a one inch group. Kinda worried that these will not either but for twenty dollars for one hundred thought I would try and see.

I use the hornady interlocks in my Browning 270 (150 gr) and 300 (180 gr) win mag and have developed loads that shoot sub MOA. They also perform excellent on game as you say. If you have some interest in my formula, send me a PM.

I use them in my 30-06 and have had great results. They used to be known as "The Poor Man's Premium Bullet" as they were an inexpensive solution to bullet explosion and jacket/core separation. I don't know how they will hold up to magnum velocities at close range, though, As far as accuracy goes, your rifle may or may not like them... Every rifle is different

I shoot the 130's out of a .270, sub moa groups, as long as you do your part the bullet will do its part.

I've used them to take deer in 30-30 WCF, 30-40 Krag, 348 WCF, and have hand loaded them in several other calibers with good results.

I have been using the 139 gr in my 7mm-08 this year. good groups and complete pass through on 4 deer at distances from 60 yards to 125 yards so far. I like them so far....
