Mine fall down when hit with Hornady or Speer. They fall down when hit with Noslers too.

I decided to go with the Nosler Accubonds. Thanks for all the input.

My gunsmith shoots a .280. He's killed a bull elk every year for the last 55 years with core-lokts.

He laughs at magnums, and premium bullets.

I should say we laugh together.

I killed my last four elk with a .30-06. I bought a 300 WM because I wanted a new gun and I could. Who's laughing now?

Me. I got a $2000 bamboo fly rod, because I could. I can use it 300 days a year. How many days do you use the new magnum?

No reason to claim you bought something, because you can. As if nobody else can.

Lame bragging.

No reason to go off topic either. If you recall, I didn't ask for an opinion on magnums vs non magnums but rather an opinion on 300 WM ammo. You began the "laughing" dialog.

I gave you an answer. Core-lokts. You didn't like it, but it's all you need to kill an elk, and half the price of what you bought.
