Hornady® LEVERevolution™ Rifle Centerfire Ammo
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.

If you have been looking for a reason to get out your lever gun, this is it. It will be like shooting a new gun. This ammo shoots exceptionally well out of my 35 Rem. On bags this ammo produced 1 inch groups from 100 yards. This is better than any of the other ammo I have tried. Penetration is equal to the Rem 200gr core-loks i have used for years, with more energy and flatter trajectory. If you want to increase your range of your lever gun, you need to try this ammo.

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 purchased my first .444 marlin lever action rife. I have been a high caliber rifle hunter for years. This ammo with this rifle has changed my hunting. My state lets us use theese types of rifles for muzzleload seasons. I though I'd give one a try. With this ammo I shot tight grouping at 200,300 yards. The ammo is slightly more expensive than my 7mm. But the power and accuracy of this ammo, makes it my #1 gun from now own.
