    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.

    Musket,

    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.

    Hi ivorytip,

    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.

    Just because there is more technology doesnt mean it is any better. My 65 ford will get me to town and back just as good as a new truck with every option would. A over 85 year old 270 win will kill an elk just as dead as a new 300 RUM. Just because its newer doesnt mean it can do the job any better.
