Hornady® LEVERevolution™ Rifle Ammo allows hunters to achieve maximum trajectory in lever-action rifles and carbines using Hornady FTX® Bullets that feature a pointed Flex Tip® that is safe to use in tubular magazines. These aerodynamic bullets dramatically extend the range of cartridges normally loaded with round- or flat-nosed bullets. Upon impact, the Flex Tip compresses into the bullet, initiating devastating expansion across a wide range of velocities. Hornady’s InterLock® ring design keeps core and jacket together to ensure maximum weight retention for deep penetration. Hornady LEVERevolution is premium Rifle Ammo for use in all types of firearms, including single-shot pistols and rifles, and of course lever-actions.

LEVERevolution's revolutionary new bullet design may require a newer magazine follower to provide best possible functioning of the last round out of the magazine.
Hornady® LEVERevolution™ Rifle Centerfire Ammo
The best period
The new Hornady Lever-Evolution ammo for the 45-70 is the absolute best factory ammo that I have ever shot. I have a H&R 1871 Buffalo Classic with a 32" barrel and the factory peep sights, and I can shoot 1" groups at 100 yards all day. If you are looking for a great brush buster round with supreme accuracy and tons of real knockdown power, this is it.

Great Accuracy, below average close-range knockdn
I was so excited to see Hornady come out with this line of ammunition. I've deer hunted with my Marlin 30-30 for 20 years and I wouldn't trade it for any other gun where I hunt. I hunt thick woods and have probably killed 80% of the deer I've shot with it, within 50 yds. Recently I have started hunting with a freind at his camp where long range, 200-300 yard, shots are common. I bought a savage .270 bolt to hunt with there. A year later Hornady releases the Leverevolution line. There is no doubt the bullets are by far the most accurate I've ever shot through my 30-30. Incredible! My only complaint is last week I shot a 180 lb, 8-point 3 times within 40 yds before the buck dropped. All three shots were in the kill zone. I have yet to get the chance to shoot one over a 100 yds with the new Hornadys, I'm sure I could hit one up to 250 yds, but I would not recommend these for close range at all. The 8-point had 3 entrance holes and 3 exit wounds, all well placed. I guess the bullets velocity was just so great it just went right through with no knockdown energy. I've never had the 130 gr. Remmington coreloks i use to shoot behave that way at 40 yds. Most everyone I know that hunts with a 30-30 has another gun for long shots, myself included. These bullets are extremely accurate but at 250 yds I'd rather be shooting my .270. I was just disappointed because I hoped the bullets would give me longer range with the 30-30, without sacrificing the close range knockdown power I love the gun for. There is no more accurate a bullet out there, I'm convinced of that, but for close range (up to 100 yds) I prefer the remmington corelokt.

Steroids for 30/30
I have hunted with a 30/30 for several years and shot lots of deer with it. The only thing I hated was it was only good to about 150 yards. Read the reviews about this new ammo and had to try it out. Sited gun in at range and was getting 1.5" groups at 100 yards. Tried it at 200 yards it shot about 4" low from my 100 yard zero. My eleven year old daughter shot a doe with it on the youth hunt. The old nanny ran about 30 yards and dropped like a rock. Shot two deer with it already and both dropped in their tracks. The exit wounds I'm getting with this new ammo looks more like I'm shooting an '06.

I used this ammo last weekend to sight in my marlin 30-30, we were using a 1/4 steel rod to hold our target out at 100 yards. I hit the rod and it curled almost all the way around. This is a very hard hitting round and will be using from now on.
I now use this in my Marlin 336 .30-30 and like it. You would need to spend some range time to determine if it is accurate in your rifle just to be sure. If you've been using standard round or flat tip ammo this prints a bit higher so adjust your sights for that. The polymer tips are soft so they do not cause a problem in tubular magazines and shoot fairly flat. They also perform great on deer with very good expansion.
can i find any other bullets for a marlin 308 express? i will be hunting everyting from coyotes to moose to bear. and i know the plastic tip bullets wont hold up to those animas. is there any other brand that makes bullets for a marlin 308 express?
Since this is Hornady ammunition, why don't you contact Hornady and ask them? Different bullets will require you to reload your own rounds, but Hornady can help you with all the info you need, such as overall length of the round, and where and how to seat the different bullets.
The ballistic tip ammunition is specifically designed for hunting. The tip allows the bullet to achieve maximum velocity, and upon impact, is destroyed and the benefit of the hollow core kicks in creating lots of internal damage. The end result with ballistic tip ammo is, you acheive maximum FPS, and also maximum expansion. It will be fine for larger game. Not sure how that round is going to do for coyotes, as my experiance with coyotes is usually a long range shot. A .308 express isn't exactly a tac driver at range. My recommendation if you were going to varmint hunt is to pick up a bolt action .17 HMR, or a 22 Mag and get some Hornady V-Max ammo. They make squirrels explode, it's pretty cool.
The 357 is a great round at closer distances and great in thick brush. But for Elk Hunting I'd take the 7 mag, it's an amazing round. In 165 grain and i suggest Hornady Custom bullets, they are usually a few dollars more but well worth it , and the 7 mag is more than enough power for that elk just put a good shot on him.
357 is NOT a proper round for Elk. Will work for deer as I have put 3 in the freezer with a 357 BUT my 357 were hand loads and quite a bit more powerful than what you can get off of the shelf. I would not even want to try and see if they would work for Elk, not unless you handload and even then I think I would use a more powerful load and a load that will make a clean kill for sure. Better to make sure than just hit one and let it get away to die later and be harvested by coyotes.
