Hornady® LEVERevolution™ Rifle Centerfire Ammo
4 for 5
5 shots this year. 4 deer, 1 miss. The miss was me, Great ammo, I use the 44 mag 225 grain. My long shot was a doe at 154 yards, she field dressed at just under 200 lbs. My Buck was the only one that took a step after hit, nine steps then dropped. Where I live you can take up to 8 does, but only one buck. I took 3 does, all dropped where they stood. I am sold, no more slugs for me. My Dad and brother combined for 10 shots they they got 2 deer. Hornady LeveRevolution 44 mag 225 grain out of my Rossi single shot Rifle is my perfect ticket. I practiced out to 200 yards. Consistant tight patterns.

accurate, but will not cycle in marlin rifles
I took this ammo to the range to sight in my Marlin 444xlr. The first shot was as expected, until, that is, I tried to cycle another round. The spent cartridge would not extract! I finally pried it out, and tried again. This time all went as expected, with a smooth extraction. However the third time the case was so stuck that I had to take the rifle home and use a rod to punch it out. I called Marlin and was told that in order to use Hornady LeverEvolution ammunition, a different extractor is required. Hard to justify purchasing and installing a modified extractor just for a brand of ammo. Sorry, not going to do it.

Please do not buy this
The bullet disintegrates. No penetration. Email me I will send you proof. We hunt MS with 45.70's. Everyone bought these because ballistics look great, but after wounding many deer with good shots (some on video) we will never take a chance again. SAD story!!!

My whole family uses these bullets in a range from 30-30, 44 mag, and the best 45-70. we have all killed many deer with these bullets and have never lost a single one. it turns an ordinary round into a great one. these bullets chamber very easily and smooth in all Marlin leveractions.
