    In the bullet test Eastmans did a while back the Core-Lokt was the only lower priced bullet and it held its own with all the expensive ones! Lots of very good bullets have come out in recent years but the Core-Lokt and the Partition are still the standard, just like the 270 and 30-06!

    I should be drawn in one of Utah's premier elk units where 400 class bulls are not uncommon. No one has more bonus points than me, so my chances are better than good. If I am drawn, I will use my 40 year old Model 700 in .270 Win with 150 grain bullets.

    Core Lokts are the last bullet I would choose for elk. If I did use a Core Lokt out of my 270, it would be a 150 grain. Much better would be a Nosler Accubond or Barnes tsx.
