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.

Click with 30-30 shells
Not very happy with this new ammo. I've read a lot of good reviews about this ammo and I purchased 2 boxes. When I went to site in my gun with these new shells I was excited. When I got to my 5th shell the gun went "CLICK "! Took the shell out and put it back in, then the gun fired. I didn't think anything of it after shooting the rest of the box with no problem.
I went hunting my next day off. I got up in my stand around 6:15am. About 30 min. later I hear something behind me. I turned around and there is this 10 point buck coming my way ! The biggest I have ever seen. My heart is racing faster than ever. I get him in my sites, hold my breath and squeeze the trigger ..... " CLICK "!
"NO"! I thought to my self. The deer looks at me and runs off waving that white flag every hunter hates to see. Needless to say I did not hunt the rest of this gun season, I was to angry. I do not recommend these Leverevolutions to any one!
I will STICK with my BOW!
Missing a chance of a life time!!!

I was amazed at the performance of the .30-30 rounds for range and velocity and impact. That was last year, this year I purchased a New Marlin 1895XLR in .45-70 and was again amazed at the performance.
I just read the article in Shooting Times about the 'New 308 Marlin Express' and am waiting for 2007 to see if Marlin Firearms Delivers a New XLR Chambered in that Caliber so I can Purchase it as soon as it becomes available.

A new reason to pick up my 30-30
After reading about this ammo in a magazine. I dusted off my 30-30 after 20 years in the gun safe. Took some old blunt nose ammo and on box of new... plus the pointed hornady's. These bullets don't even compare, its night and day. The ballistics are amazing and give a whole new reason to start shooting the 30-30. I put 85 rounds through it that first day. Tight groupings, amazing trajectory and at 100 yards I found it to be about 5” higher than the old blunt nose ammo. You can have confidence out to 200 yards easy. At 400 yards I had shot groups 2.75 inches. Never in my life did I think that could happen.

30-30 Hornady Leverevolution Ammo
Read all the literature and decided to give the bullets a try in my 50+ year old WesternField 30-30. At 100 yds, I shot 1.5" groups, something I'd never done before off of sandbags.
Based off of those results, I bought a Marlin 336XLR and headed to the range. Once the gun was dialed in, I produced a 3 shot group at 200 yds that was 1.25"!!!!!! Absolutely amazing! Plan to try it on the "real deal" this week!

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.
