I would appreciate some insight into when to use bonded bullets. As I understand it these prevent break up on impact so penetrate deeply, but I would just like this translated into practical recommendations.
The reason for this is that I was let down a bit at the weekend so went off for two days muntjac stalking in Norfolk with nothing but a small handful of Winchester Super X (turns out that would have been more than sufficient, but that is another story). So I stopped off at Norfolk Sporting Guns (very helpful, highly recommended) and bought the only 6.5x55 ammo they had, Remington Core-Lokt.
Apart from the few I fired to check zero, the rest have come home with me.I can't get these around here, so are they worth saving for any sort of stalking in particular, or should they just be used up as general purpose ammo and replaced with the non-bonded stuff I can get hold of locally?
