Remington HyperSonic Ultra Core Lokt Review

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?

So I just got off the phone with my local gun shop to order more of this ammo and to my dismay it is discontinued. I am having rough luck with ammo lately  :(
I guess nobody else liked it........lol

I haven't tried the Hypersonic Ultra Core Lokt ammo but I do love the good old standard Core Lokt projectile and standard Remington ammo. I am running the 150gr Remington factory stuff in one of my 30-06's, 286gr ammo in my 9.3x62 and then reloading the 150gr Core Lokt projectile in my .308 and the 150gr in one of my 7mm-08's.

I used the standard Core Lokt ammo on Whitetail for years in my .308 and it performed great but now that I have moved to the magnum's I am not sure if they will hold up to the speed and energy. The Hyper Sonic had everything I wanted for Black Bear, bonded core, lots of energy and a huge mushroom.
Oh well, there are lots of other great bullets on the market that will do the job, I just really liked the on game results I got from this falls bear harvest.

I was at my local Canadian Tire store this morning and was browsing the ammo shelves and couldn't believe my eyes, in the 300 Win Mag section they had (3) boxes of the Hypersonic ammo with another (5) boxes in stock!!

Needless to say they had to pull from there stock room to replenish the shelf....... ;)

Good news Terry. Now you have approx. 20rounds to play with at the range and about 40 critters, with some reserve at the gun shop.
