    Thanks. My bad 180-grains have the "75 years" emblem whereas the 150s do not. I believe that the "deer on the side" boxes are something different. I fully intend to continue using 150-grain Core...

    Dog food and candy corns. I also pour Moultrie bear attractant in a circle around the bait. Usually its the raccoons that come in first, but they spread the scent and the bears soon follow.

    This was my fear, that my rifle wouldn't group any 180s well. Fortunately, it seems to handle the Federal Fusions just fine as well as the 165-grain copper. I want the heavier bullet for bear. ...

    SportsmanNH,

    As part of your disdain for Core Lokts, was your experience that you'd get occasional bad batches, or did you find them to be "consistently poor"?

    You may have it there. I will try 180s from another brand and see what is going on. Might be using 150 or 165-grain coppers this fall anyway. If all 180s group poorly I'll drop down until I can...
