Q:
Hey Guys, so as some of you know i will be deer hunting in Big Cove Tannery, PA on Monday. I will be using a 7mm-08 Remington bullet and i am having trouble deciding between Remington Core-Lokt and Winchester Power-Point. Both shoot accurately in my Ruger. Core-lokt seems to get the highest reviews. Anyone else have an opinion?

I have never shot a winchester Power-point but I have shot and killed several deer with core-lokts and it makes a nice big hole. I have also destroyed a hole front shoulder with one and there were so many bone chips we just about couldn't use it. So I guess it depends on how you shoot your deer.

I don't think there is much difference between any of the traditional cup and core bullets for deer. Shoot the one that is most accurate. My vote is for the Core-Lokt. You should have already zeroed your rifle with one of those loads. I doubt they truly shoot to the same point of aim.

Bioguy is right. It's six of one and a half a dozen of the other. The deer will never know the difference.

WA Mtnhunter: I have zeroed my rifle...the bullets share almost equal ballistics. I just want to know if anyone thinks ones expansion, penetration, etc. is better than the other. Thanks for responding though!

I've got no experience with the winchester, but i've used the core lokt on all the deer i've shot and they have always done their job well. Good luck whatever you use! safe hunting!

Concentrate on hitting the deer in a vital spot. Either bullet will total a deer as long as you hit them. I would take the one for which I had zeroed my rifle. Hitting deer right is a lot more important than the brand of bullet as long as you hit them. These bullets are very close in terms of composition and terminal performance.

If the both shoot the same in your rifle I would personally shoot which ever box of ammo is cheaper. I don't have any experience with the Winchester rounds but I've heard very good things about the core-lokt rounds.

My deer rifles shoot(group) both fairly well, but not to the same point of aim. I'd shoot whichever groups closer to the bullseye. Both will be effective on deer.
