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.

Hornady® LEVERevolution™ Rifle Centerfire Ammo
I recently purchased the new lever revolution ammo in .450 marlin.
This rifle produced fair accuracy with the standard 350gr.fn. with four shot groups averaging 4.5 inches at 100 yards,from a bench.With the new 325gr.revolution i was able to shave a full inch from my average.This was consistent through an entire 20 rd. box.Recoil in this rifle is very heavy,however the revolution ammo gave significantly less felt recoil than the standard load.I really like this product,and plan to purchase some for my 30-30 as well.

It's More Like a Revolution!!!
Absolutely amazing, Accurate at 150 yards like you won't believe. Site em in at 100 and shoot out to200+. I shoot the 45-70's and now I have one gun for deer all the way up to bear. Thanks Hornady

Range gives 1MOA at 100 yards. Ballistics of a 307 round nose.
I have taken two white tail bucks with it. Both were immediate knock downs, anchored.
Shot a rabbit in the eye at 35 yards, steel sights.
My 30-06 is now in the closet, and my old 30-30 hunts.

Hornady's LeverEvolution Ammo.
I had bought a box of these in the 30-30 cal. and then headed to the range. I had zeroed in at 100 yds. with Winchester 30-30 170 grain bullets first. Then I shot the LeverEvolution rounds at the same distance and got a one inch grouping and at my amazement it was shooting four to five inches high aswell.

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.
