Thread: Remington ammo

  1. #1

    Remington ammo

    Just brought some remington "managed-recoil" ammo in .270 cal 115gr core-lokt heads
    the only reason being normaly use home loads but my local FAD is having problems getting my usual powder and they were the only factory loads he had got.
    This ammo makes the boast! No scope adjustment needed! but as being a consiencious
    stalker thought i would try it on a board first, now i like to have my rifles shooting 1" high at 100yds imagine my surprise when the bullet dropped 8" low of the bull does,nt inspire you with a lot of confidence if you need to take a long,ish follow up shot.


    any thoughts or comments would be welcomed.

    i have used corelokt in 130 and 150 grain my rifle liked them alot only thing was some rounds where nothing like others from a visual point of view ie some had canular ring showing others didnt i used the ones that where the same and the others i fired off at paper but i did get good effect from most and then i started reloading,atb wayne ps there was no noticable change and didnt need to alter my scope from each weight

    no mate all over the place but did come to the conclusion my rifle seems to like 130gr bullets i am no target shooter but normally get fairly tight groups
    with home loads

    Light bullets will ALWAYS shoot lower than bullets of a heavier weight regardless of their exit velocity.

    Very frustrating but nothing can be done about it. Higher velocity = faster barrel time so less time for recoil to act. Lower velocity = slower barrel time but less recoil so barrel does not rise as far.

    In fact the ONLY factor that affects the equation is, believe it or not, the weight of powder in the case which is added to the weight of the rifle to increase the total weight vs the recoil.

    Plus, of course, 115 grains in a 270 probably has a worse SD than the heavier (and so longer) bullet. Though I doubt that at 100 yards that is much relevance only at, say, 300 yards.

    thanks for all your advice but just to say i took one of the said rounds apart and found only loaded with 34grs of some powder i am not an expert but most 270. rounds are loaded with "approx 50 to 60grns" of some powder por another
