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.

Upon using, or I should say trying to use, these cartridges they repeatedly jammed in my Uberti Model 1873 45LC Lever Action. The plastic tips are too long and always hang-up in the chamber. I would not recommend these cartridges to anyone planning on using them in a similar Uberti model.

bad for winchester 94
cant hit the paper with a pre 1955 or 50 winchester 94. balistic trajectory dosent follow the iron sights for regular 30-30 shells. need one of them forgin made lever guns or a marlin to shoot this that can mount a scope unles you want to have to kentuckey windage every shot cannot make a 100 yd or any yard zero with factory winchester sights. has flatter trajectory and biger cloud of dirt from the bank than a 170 power point but need a lever gun that can mount a scope. makes beter touch screen cell phone stylus than pre 1955 winchester 94 ammunition. would be nice if hornady made to match default balistics instead of excede and make worth less to some of us.
would only reccoment to a friend if they have a scoped lever gun. purchased at my local bass pro.

long range accuracy out of a brush gun
My Marlin 45-70 loves this ammo. At 150 yards I can shoot a 3 shot pattern with all 3 holes touching. At 100 yards the pattern looks less like mickey mouse and more like one extremely large hole. I have not found a reload or a factory load that comes close to this accuracy. As for stopping power.... Well the entry hole is nearly a half inch. I have never had a problem with a deer running far after being shot with a 45-70 regardless of ammo choice.

These cartridges turned my short range 30-30 into easily a 200 yd performer, even with my meager skills.

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.
