Default Federal 'Power Shock' vs Remington 'Core Lokt'

What's your opinion on these two economically priced ammo in .30-06, for deer hunting under 150 yards? Both shoot well out of my Rem 700.

Cor Lokts have great terminal performance. They have always expanded well and done a lot of damage on the boiler room shots, and also have still exited on when I accidentally hit the shoulder bone in my 06. Can't expect more than that. I have never used the Federals.

They are both excellent. Which one is most accurate? Which one is least expensive? In that order because they are both relatively inexpensive anyway.

Dont forget Winchester Power Points! I use them in my 300WSM.

I like the Federal with Barnes TSX best. They are accurate and devastating

Yes they are. But they cost quite a bit more then the rounds we are talking about. I like them in my 300WSM but theya re almost twice as much as the Winchester Power Points im using.

My vote is for the core-lokt's, they have always shot alittle better out of my rifle's.

Thanks for the input guys. I used the Federal Power Shoks this weekend and got great results. Shot a large doe through the heart at 110 yards, she ran 30 yards. Shot a 250 pound 9 point Buck through the lungs and went 10 yards. Not bad for a box of ammo that costs around $9.00 after the $5.00 factory rebate. See photo.
