Hornady® LEVERevolution™ Rifle Centerfire Ammo
I have a Marlin 336C that includes a Leupold VX2 2-7x33 w/ aligned Warne steel maxima bases and rings.
I can shoot 2-2.5 inch groups with Remington Core-Lokt Ammo. But, I was very impressed w/ the ballistics of the LeverEvolution and thought I would give it a try.
Off of my Caldwell Rock rest @100 yds. I completely missed an 11"x17" paper target w/ my first three shots. I then verified the scope w/ Rem ammo in which it was dead on. I went to a larger target and located the bullet at 9.5" high.
After making the adjustment, I then shot (6) two shot groups (12 total rounds) w/ 3 min. cool down and never placed any two within 3' of eachother. My final four shot group measured @ 4" in dia.

45-70 Govt Marlin 1895G
Firing this ammo out of a Marlin 1895 Guide Gun I was not to impressed with the results. Shooting a paper plate at 50 yards 3 out of 6 hit it. At 60 Yards, in which I fired the rest of the box off, of the remaining 14 shells, 6 hit with a 5 inch group. Did not care for this ammo. The good thing about these shells is that the recoil was not bad compared to the others that I have previously used. Great for getting used to the gun. Now I decided not to waste hundreds of dollars finding the right bullet for it. I am now using my 30-06 Springfield. Works great with a variety of different shells.

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.
