After 5 relatively slow days in the Idaho backcountry I finally found a buck bedded at 485 yards. My plan was to wait until he stood, but patience isn't my strong suit. grin He was quartered toward me with most of his front half exposed and I felt confident I could slip a bullet behind the shoulder. Shot felt good and I could see him obviously hit well. The bullet landed tight behind the shoulder but with the angle and the low profile being bedded it exited his spine.

As he was sliding down extremely steep hillside and trying to regain his feet I sent another one that landed mid body angled back.

The first bullet exited and was never to be seen... The second bullet was found just under the hide. The jacket had separated but the core was in the exact same location. Total weight of both pieces was 123 grains or 82% weight retention.

Great prices. I would be on some, if I did not already have a lifetime supply.

I really like the horn andy interlock and the swift a frame in 270 at 150 grains. They are deadly rounds and elevate the 270 as a great game killer, I think.

Loaded 50 of these up last night in some new WW brass, have a few different .270’s so going to zero them all up and use as my back up guns for the rest of this year. Trying to shoot something with the .338-06 I’ve had for years and neglected.

Good to learn some first hand info about them. If I end up using one I will report back as well.

I got 2,000 from Midsouth Shooters Supply 15 or more years ago and just never got around to using any.

They were blems but I don’t see anything wrong with them and others have had good luck shooting the various blems over the years

I'd run Interlocks in a minute. Great factory bullet IMO. They should really elevate a 270's game, and that's saying a lot.

That bullet is for our bear loads here in Wisconsin. Only one 206 lb bear but it went through the front shoulders and out the rib cage . Bear went 20'. I use mostly Hornady now days cause I can get them. However , I have been buying Speer bullets cause they are considerably cheaper, but only used them on one doe my son shot , a .243 Win 100 gr.

I have used a LOT of them but I never shot an elk with one.
I did kill a lot of deer with them as well as a few horses and cows on the ranch. When my Mauser 270 had it's 1st and it's 2nd barrels in it I shot more of that particular bullet from that rifle than any other. If something needed to be shot and I had the 270 with me that was the bullet it usually got shot with. I think elk is the only exception. Why.?...just because I typically had Partitions in my rifle if I was after elk, but looking back at what I saw killing those horses, I am pretty sure I would not have been disappointed if I'd have used an Inner Lock.

Like Mule Deer I also used WW2 surplus 4831 and I used a lot of GI 30-06 brass that I neck-sized down. I found in my Mauser that the same load of powder and the same primer would group the 150 Gr Nosler Partition and the 150 Gr Hornady Spire Points on top of each other. So for years I used the same load of powder with both bullets and never had a complaint.

I would buy them wrapped in clear plastic sleeves with 5 boxes together and most times I'd buy 2 or 3 of those at a time. I shot them a lot and loved them. My M70 Winchester shot them into just slightly over 1" and my Mauser with the 1st and the 2nd barrel shot them well under 1 inch The 2nd barrel was freakishly accurate for a long time---- until I shot the rifling's out of the throat.

Awesome animals. I use the original 140 interlock at creed speeds in my 6.5 cm. Great in the timber. For my 270 I bought a bunch of the 145gr eldx with the interlock on sale before the craziness happened. I have a bunch to last me a long time. I have had good luck with them too.

59 of rl22. Almost out of 22 so will be looking elsewhere. I have a few boxes of precision Hunter and that was very accurate for me too.

Why is Hornady keeping the shelves full and other manufacturers can’t ? Could it be that folks are buying the “other” bullets instead? Interlocks have shot fine in my handloads. Interbonds not so much…
