What do you not like about Core-Lokts? I have seen alot of quick 1 shot kills with them and they have always worked well for me.

I agree with you. They are a decent bullet. I shot a few elk with them when I was younger- (180 grain 30-06). I do believe that technology has passed them considerably and there are better options on the market. That said, a dead elk is a dead elk. If you believe in them, shoot them forever. That is how I feel about my Interbonds. Technology will likely pass them up as well but I don't think I will ever change.
I've been acquiring Utah bonus points for 22 years. Utah is home of huge bulls.
When I selected an outfitter & he found out how many bonus points I have, he put me on a limited entry elk unit that some consider to be the best area in the nation for trophy elk. From what I've read, it consistently produces 400+ bulls. To my walk of looking at elk hunting, anywhere near a 400 bull would be a trophy of a lifetime.
Many years ago, after squandering time and money chasing elk lore, I decided to concentrate on a limited entry tag in a legitimate trophy unit. I've waited many years for a chance at one of Utah's famed trophy bulls. I'm hoping that this is my year. If not, I'll keep waiting.
I am going to experiment with 150 grain Partitions in my .270 Win. My 7MM Rem Mag is my most accurate rifle. However, it is my most heavy rifle. I believe that there will be a whole lot of hiking and work involved in getting to where trophy bulls live. That's why I want to hunt with my .270 Win.
I'd go with Accubonds, trust me, I drive a GMC.
Umm...we call that Barely Clean.
