BTW, I can't wait to try the Ultra-bondeds in my 7 Mag and 243.

Default Reloading Managed recoil .270/115

Howdy Ya'll,
First I will say please fogive me for my ignorance. With that out of the way, I noticed someone wrote about reloading for a .270. I am a first time reloader and although I have done lots of research I still have the first time jitters. But could someone tell me about reloading a managed recoil. I dissassembled one to see what made it what it was. Speculating from, Modern reloading 2nd Edition (Richard Lee), the closest I can get to the recipe is a, 100 gr. jacketed bullet/30.5 grains of SR4759 (which is intended also for pistol and shot-gun) but is listed under .270 Win./for a FPS of 2720.
The bullet of the Rem. 115 mang. recoil is of course 115 gr./the powder is about 33.567 grains/and the FPS is 2710. From reading a description of the SR4759 it sounds about like what the "powder" more less tiny solid cylinders if you ask me look like in the 115 grain managed recoil for Remington .270. However in my research I seen where it is commonly used in Managed Recoil. It also seems that when I add the 3 extra grains to the recipe it will compensate for the additional 5 grains in the bullet. And lastly the 6.8mm has a .277 diameter, can I use this as my 115 grain bullet for my .270 rounds seeing it is the same diameter? Any suggestions would be Greatly Appreciated, God Bless.

I have used them in my 30-06 hunting rifle and they shoot crazy good I think. We are talking 1/2 to 3/4" 5 shot at 100 yards for a hunting rifle. WOW.

I've been told by an ex-Remington engineer that the company doesn't provide freebies to magazine writers as others do. Therefore Remington components rarely get mention in the press. Therefore, since many of us follow the writers, Remington components get ignored a lot. Except for those of us who know better.

In my opinion, Core-Lokts are as good or better performers as many so called "premium" bullets and cost MUCH less!

No brand of bullet shoots best with any rifle but I fequently start with Rem, IF I can find them, and quite often stop there too. Thank God for MidwayUSA!

I am a student of terminal ballistics and an ex big game guide. I have had good hunting accuracy with Remington core-loct bullets but have had poor hunting luck with their never bullets (post 1970). In the earlier years the core-loct was the best non pemium bullets on the market. They had a heavy mid section and tapered jacket. After @ 1970 many failures started being reported and Remington admited they no longer had the old design and was simply building just the common cup and core bullets of early 1900's. I have had and seen a few failure but havent had many clients use them. This year I had a core-lokt failure on a mid sized mule deer buck shot at 200 yards with a 270 Win. and using 130 grain bullets. The bullet only penatrated 4" before it desentagrated.

Default Although Inexperienced....

Although I was raised on a single shot 12 gauge Iver Johnson (older than television), I have become very fond of my 2 year old Savage 111 .270. I bought it in 2007, took it hunting and the man said, "It's ready to hunt right out of the box," HA- HA, although I was pretty inexperienced in the .270 or any other rifle, I had shot a few. So I took the following year, after missing a nice 10-12 pointer, just getting use to the rifle and sighting it in for myself. So I hunted with my Winchester 1300 pump W/double 00 Buck and took to feeling out this, on the most part new, light, and kicked pretty good rifle. Once I sighted it in I realized, (and maybe it's just the way I shoot) it was about 4" low and 3" to the left. I also learned that I am more compatible with shooting the 270, 115 gr. managed recoil corelok by remington, with a synthetic stock. So after a year of practice and adjusting I got me a 7 pointer, doube lung shot at 105 yds. at the close of last season. Great feeling. I could move up to the 130 or even 150 grain corelok, but with a synthetic stock and not shooting more than 183 yards where I am hunting now, I am happy with the 115 grain. Hats off to Remington on their managed recoil corelok ssp. I like the way their bullets are seated uniformly compared to other brands also. And by the way guys and gals, that big buck I missed the next day after I bought the rifle, I knocked a piece of hide off right beneath his chest plate and he didn't bleed but one drop where I grazed him. But he won't be that lucky next year! And by the way I always heard a bullet comes out bigger than it goes in, not on this 7 pointer. The entrance hole where it hit him in the rib was just as big as where it came out on the other side. About an inch in diameter. Happy hunting to all in the 2009-2010 season.
