I guess gun writers have to write articles. Most big game bullets work fine when you hit the animal in the vitals. Nothing against the Core-lokt but if it's not any better than a Hot Cor, Interlock or Power Point. I think my favorite is the Nosler Ballistic Tip.

My favorite is definitely the Nosler Ballistic Tip, but if all I had were Powerpoints or CoreLokt or SST's, I'd be Ok. Never had any of them fail the job if I put the bullet in the lungs.

Nosler partition, the standard by which all hunting bullets are judged, for over 60 years. The accubond is a very close 2nd.

As long as it includes Nosler Partitions I am good with the list.

You lost me at Core Lokt. No, doubt it's the #1 best bullet on their list.

If it says Hornady on the box it works
opinions are like other things that people have one of.

Well I'm sure those are the best five bullets for the author. For another person that list will be different. Don't know if they are the best but I use:
.223 - GameKing and PowerPoint
.243 - PowerPoint and SST
6.5x55 - Berger Hunting VLD
.270 - Core-Lokt
30-30 - Core-Lokt
30-06 - Core-Lokt
