If it beats Hornady’s price for polymers and has near the consistency Id buy.

I’m in! Never had much frustration with Corelokt accuracy, but I think these will be a good thing made better.

Looks like the old green tip Sierra bullets I use to get years ago. Green tip game kings. Only difference is the old Sierra were boat tail. I'll be on the lookout for these as components for my reloading 30 cal stuff. The old Sierra green tip bullets were very accurate and my go to bullet back in the day.

I’d be interested in trying it in 30/30. My Marlin hates the Hornady lever gun ammo.

I'd try it if I didn't already have 25 boxes of Core Lokt 180 gr. in 300 win mag. My wife and I both shoot 300s and I stocked up over the last 5-6 years, just in case. I'm glad I did. Got them at walmart for $23 per box.

They still make Core-Lokt?

With the lack of inventory, I wasn’t really sure.

I wonder if that bullet isn’t the Sierra Tipped Game Changer.

Since Federal now owns the ammo dept of Remington.

I have been looking for 270, 150 grain for a while..

Talked to them , and was told it would be soon, and asked if i wanted to be an insider, and that they would be selling it online and direct from them... Very soon...

The plant was shut down due to bankruptcy. It's been purchased and reopened recently.

Since Nosler doesn't seem to want to make anything anymore if I could find some in 7mm-08 I'd be willing to try them.

On a related note, I know Vista Outdoors bought Remington's ammo division but does anyone know what other ammo brands they're associated with? Anything quality?
