Remington Core Lokt Tipped For Sale Centerfire Rifle Ammo
The latest generation in Remington Core-Lokt ammo is available with Remington Core Lokt Tipped For Sale Centerfire Rifle Ammo. Remington’s “Deadliest Mushroom” comes with improved accuracy, flatter trajectory, and enhanced terminal ballistics with the new Big Green polymer tip.With the new Core-Lokt Tipped, all the new Remington really did was alter the original Core-Lokt bullet to accept a polymer tip. Polymer-tipped big-game bullets have become very popular because they protect the bullet meplat—tip—from damage. Damage to a bullet’s tip can erode ballistic coefficient (BC) and accuracy. Also, because polymer tips streamline the bullet’s shape, they increase the BC. As a comparison, a standard 150-grain .30-caliber Core-Lokt bullet has a BC of .314, and the new Tipped version has a BC of .480. With a muzzle velocity of 2800 fps at 300 yards, that difference equates to 3.3 inches less drop and 5 inches less drift in a 10-mph crosswind. As the distances increase, so does the advantage of the tipped version. Return to tradition with the Core Lokt ammo name now featuring ballistic tip technology. For all practical purposes, both loads delivered the same velocity. The standard Core-Lokt had averaged 2809 fps for 10-shots and the new load averaged 2794 fps for 10 shots. That’s an inconsequential difference of only 15 fps. In most cases, even the best ammunition you can buy will vary more than 15 fps from shot to shot.
