On the surface this is a premium cartridge with a pretty straightforward mechanically bonded projectile in the 180 grain Core-Lokt line of .30 caliber bullets. But this is the newer, advanced design by Remington which improves upon this mechanical bonding process by adding more contact and better stepping design to ensure more of the jacket remains intact. In the fractions of a second that the bullet is traveling through the skin, tissue and bone of the game animal, it needs to have certain things go a certain way in order to have optimized lethality on target.
Specifically, the Core-Lokt process offers a more uniform deformation and the pointed soft point delivers good directional deformation that moves linearly down to the first bonded section where it then begins to peel back the jacket until it reaches the next bonded section which holds the mass of the bullet now around its circumference. All of this is happening as the bullet is penetrating through the target. The retention of the full weight (with very little degradation) ensures that the round can potentially exit the animal after penetrating through tough bone and muscle. It is this penetration depth and potential for exit wound that delivers the most effective stopping power. Core-Lokt by Remington practically pioneered the concept, and now they have improved upon it.
