Remington Corelokt 185's JMNSVHO.
Vital Shok's ! ! !
Little pricy but well worth it ! ! !
That is a matter of opinion. My vote goes to the 180 grain Winchester Silvertip, while taking nothing away from Remington, Federal, Hornady, etal. in the same bullet weight.
Not "knocking" the ol' "sliver tips" I used them for YEARS.
I just upgraded over the years. Silvers,CXP's to Ballistic tips, Fail Safes(did'nt care for them), then on to the Vital Shoks. +1 for you 99 ! For the memorys !
Never saw a 185 grain Corelokt. 180, 165, and 150 is all that I have seen.
Federal 165 or 180 grain Barnes TSX or MRX hands down.
For elk I'd move up a notch to the Nosler Partition 180gr. Might try a 165-180 Barnes load.
I do like to keep a box of Silvertips in every caliber I have. Love those werewolf bullets!
180 grain round-nose Remington core lockt worked well for me
The one that weighs 180 grains, and shoots the best in YOUR particular rifle.
+1 for jbird. A 180 grain load that shoots accurately in your rifle, with a bullet that is designed for penetration. Accuracy is the key.
Jim in Mo +1
For elk I'd move up a notch to the Nosler Partition 180gr. Might try a 165-180 Barnes load!
But if you can't find it, I do know you can easily find 180 grain Remington's Core-Lokt® at Wal-Mart and they work fantastic on Moose!
