Remington HyperSonic Ultra Core Lokt Review
« on: September 13, 2017, 09:40:28 AM »
A few months back I started to do some research for some good black bear ammo for my 300 Win Mag and came across the fairly new Remington Hypersonic Ultra Core Lokt. After reading reviews and ballistics I decided to get them a try at the range.
My Savage Model 114 loved them so they made the trip to bear camp this past week where I was fortunate to harvest a 300 + lb black bear. I am pleased to report the bullet did exactly what I wanted, complete pass through with about a 2" exit hole with very little meat damage. Wish I could have recovered the bullet but by the looks of the carcass after skinning the bullet showed great expansion and wound trauma with no signs of core separation.
I am sold and would highly recommend them to those who are on the fence.

Thanks for sharing Terry. Before I started reloading, I used Remington core lokt ammo exclusively. Sounds like the ultra core lokt could be worth checking out, I assume the ultra means they are now bonded?
