Hornady® LEVERevolution™ Rifle Centerfire Ammo
30-30 Hornady Style
The leverevolution bullets grouped to .75 inches at 200 yards in my Winchester model 94. Thats about 3 inches better than any load I've used and the trajectory is what I would expect from a .308 Win with a 20 in barrel. There is, after 100+ years, a major improvement in the 30-30. Hurrah!!

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.

A New Life for an Old Rifle
Heard about the balistics on this new cartdrige really couldn't believe the data so I just had to buy a box. Boy was I in for a huge suprise, used my 32 year-old Marlin 336C (the first gun my dad ever gave me) and after some sight adustment was poping a 5 gal. bucket top @200 yds. (no I didn't belive it at first either) no problem. So just for giggles I purchased a Burris 3X9X40 Fullfield II scope and mounts and dialed everthing in to 200 yds. Old Tired Iron just became my new favorite gun again. Never Thought I would scope a 100 yd. brush gun in my life!!!!!

not so sure
I shot a 6 point buck at 65 yards with this ammo knocked him down realized that i had left my knife in the truck i had to walk back to the truck. I finally get back to my deer and he was gone i started looking for blood none was found. Just so happened i looked behind me and the deer was climbing out of a ditch. So i put another round in the deer making sure it was in the vitals 15 minutes later the deer is still alive so i shot him again finally he passed after three kill shots 2 at less than 5 yards and none of them went completely through the deer i am not very impressed with this ammo.I will give it one more try and see what happens if its no better i will not use this ammo again.
