Kudos to Able for publishing an accurate muzzle velocity of 2710 for 130 gr PSP Express Core Lokt. I initially struggled with these believing they were the same as the other green box and expected the trajectory of the 3060 FPS published on Remington’s ballistic charts. The rounds work fine now that I know what to expect. -
Used this for the first time this year and 3 whitetail fell in their tracks. Two of them were shot behind the shoulder and both had a caliber size entrance wound and a quarter size exit wound, with massive internal damage..One was shot at 30 yards and the other at close to 175 yards..The third deer was shot through both shoulders, the bullet held together and again produced an exit wound about the size of a quarter..As for accuracy, in my Ruger American, it punched a 7/8" group of 3 shots at 100 yards, that group size could probably be shrunk with a quality rest. - HOWARD
I've been shooting the 140 Grain version of this for a couple of years at white tail from a Remington 700. This stuff is deadly. Seems to hit the deer harder than anything else I've used. The deer just drop. - J. O.
Have had good experiences with this round on cow elk x 4, all more or less broadside, hitting either from above or below. Has passed through in each case, large exit wound, good damage inside (4-5"' hole in lungs). Has shot reasonably well in both a Rem 700 and a Win 70 (Sporter LT). Not quite as accurate as some cup and core bullets, but close, and reliable on game in my experience. Does not seem particularly sensitive to temperature differences -- a good thing. - B. S.
Before trying this round. I used ONLY Hornady stock #8556 140 gr BTSP interlock light magnum rounds in my Winchester Model 70 270 cal. Since they no longer make stock #8556, I thought I would give these a try. The other rounds were incredibly accurate, and had a very easy to handle recoil. After switching to this round I am actually holding the same unbelievable accuracy, and No real noticable difference in recoil. Seemingly a real smooth switch. However, the bullet itself is better. I noticed the knock down power is better and it doesn\'t break apart when impacting bone. To sum it up, it looks to me as a \"sportsman\", that they took the light magnum load and added a better bullet.
In my opinion it is better, but does it justify the price? I believe it does. I want an accurate round that packs a punch for just about any game and gives me a quick clean kill. It does it all, super accurate, hard hitting, and does not erode the accuracy of my rifle. I have switched for good, Hopefully they keep making it! - P. L.
