    150 GRAIN remington corelok. 1" at 100 yds out of a HR Handi Rifle.
    I figured that was good enough. I haven't shot any more brands.

    I've been shooting the Core Loks in the 180gr and been real pleased. There's 3 different kinds of c/l in 180's you have to have the Remington number to get the best one?not sure why they do that. For cutovers and power/gas lines my friends use Hornady's 150gr. They also make several of those and some are better than others.

    There's some small numbers on the end of the box. I was mistaken, there's 2 different ones. R308W2 and R308W3 are the numbers on the end of the box. There's a big difference between the 2, I think the W2's are the better ones.

    Anything from the factory in 168gr, and 168gr also when i hand roll them. I go for 168gr AMaxes with 42.6gr of VARGET, also sub-moa.

    Federal Gold Metal Match 168 grain! These use the Sierra 168 Match Kings and by far are the best bullets made IMO. I also load 168 and 175 grain Sierra Match Kings and get sub MOA.
