Remington’s Core-Lokt Anniversary
Remington’s Core-Lokt® ammunition will soon celebrate 75 years of fine ballistic sales and performance.
Last fall, I completed a survey regarding my use and satisfaction of the Core-Lokt rifle cartridges. They also asked about hunters’ preferences for the design of the 75th anniversary logo and the appearance of the new box that this time-tested ammo will appear in soon.
While not all hunters believe in Core-Lokt or any factory ammo for that matter, the reputation of this effective ammunition from Big Green, however, is generally positive in most places.
It would have to have a favorable reputation to make it 75 years in the highly competitive ammunition business.
Remington claims it is “the original controlled-expansion bullet.” The ammunition line has a broad range of weights and calibers.
Most times of the year, hunters can find a box of twenty Core-Lokt rifle cartridges for nearly any caliber in the $15 to $30 range. Plus, most Remington consumers know that from early fall through late winter, a rebate is offered, giving hunters even more savings on an already affordable yet proven cartridge.
Finding stories with a one-shot-drop for a kill is fairly easy when it comes to this venerable cartridge. It is hard to find a hunter who hasn’t shot Remington Core-Lokt ammo at some time or the other and had some success with it.
More accurate ammo can be hand-loaded or possibly found at a higher price in retail stores. But this ammo has been reliable and efficient for 75 years and doesn’t seem to be going anywhere but fast and deadly.
