Tried a box of these (120 grain soft points) in my Winchester Model 70 25-06 and was very pleased with the performance. They appear to be at the same price point of the Remington CorLokts that I've been shooting for years but with a noticeable increase in performance (tighter groups).

Got a box of them in 95 grain 243. I assume it is the same bullet as the fusion line in the 243 as it was a bonded 95 grain bullet.

They shot poorly out of my new savage, groups about 3-4 inches at 100 yards. Loading the same brass with 100 grain sierra prohunters and pretty much any charge of IMR 4350 yielded less than an inch at 100 yards.

Ill add it went against everything in me to buy ammo called "Deer Thugs" but it was the only 243 they had and I was looking for some cheap ammo to get on target and collect some brass.

Good feedback that just goes to show how ammo can perform differently in different guns.
