My buddy bought a box of Remmy CLs for his 243.

keep in mind that both of our 243s are spot on.

His gun wouldn't shoot them good. At best an 8" circle. I shot a few rounds out of my 243 this morning and the same thing happened.
I've always shot CLs and never had an issue

My only conclusion is that it was a bad batch.

Contact Remington and have the batch # when you do. Might get a replacement from them but mostlikely have to send the unused bullets back to Remington. 8 inches is more of a pattern than a group

Never seen Core Lockts shoot worth a darn. None that were produced in the last 15 years, anyway.

Truth told for sure.

They are notorious for poor accuracy. Learn from the experience and don't purchase them again.

I'll be the one to disagree. My 30-06 seems to like them in the 165 gr better than any other factory ammo I've tried.

Shot 130 grain corelocks out of my 270 for a few years before I started reloading, I never had accuracy issues with them.

I have to agree, I guess since I did not know any better, that is all I ever bought for my .270 since as far back as I can remember. I still shoot it in my 7mm08 AR10. Yes I do reload but that is where my brass comes from for my deer gun and my LR toy.

I, for one, have had nothing but good luck with CL's. They get a bad rap but not from me.

I shot them for years in my 243. It's not match ammo but it always produced decent accuracy.

If it is shooting an 8" group, id call Remington.

I have had some many problems with Remington 22 ammo. My son in law had a lot of problems out of Remington primers. I guess it makes since to have problems out of the CL's to.

I don't buy the 22 ammo or primers anymore.

This.

I don't load for my .270 Win. X-Bolt as the Corelokts are what it loves. Good performance on all game I've ever shot with it.

Same with me. I check my .270's prior to each hunting season, all are sighted in with the Remy 130's - I buy several boxes a year. The poi never changes from year to year. I won't shoot anything else.
