Hornady Leverlution Ammo

Hornady leverlution Ammo... Sure do like it better then the Corelokts for accuracy in my Marlin 336 35 Rem.

Heard tell that they don't shoot well in some of the 30/30 because the older 30/30 have the wrong rate of twist. they sure do shoot well in the old Marlin 336 35 Rem!!!

Do you like the leverlution ammo? What caliber ammo Leverlution do you like or dislike?

Not the case with my Brothers Rifle, He bought a box for his Marlin 336 3030. He liked them so much He started re loading them himself. But then no two rifles are the same.

Re: Hornady Leverlution Ammo

I've had great success in my mid-70s Marlin 336A with the 30-30 ammo. As accurate as that guns other favorite, the old Remington 170 gr.Corlokt - shoots 1 to 1.5 inch groups at 100 yards. And performance on game is every bit as good as the old corelokts. I've swithed to it exclusivly.

The .35 Remington ammo shoots well in my peep sighted 7600, but haven't scored with that gun yet so no on game performance report.

Actually, a 45/70 is very much a bean feild rifle. In a long barreled single shot rifle, you can kill deer easily at a few hundred yards. I`m not that good but the round, gun and ammo is

Re: Hornady Leverlution Ammo

I don,t really see a need for it.The price was way out of line but now you can get it on sale at times.I,ve been huntin with these rifles for almost 40 years and can honestly say I can,t see where they would have made a difference on the old standard ammo.

Re: Hornady Leverlution Ammo

I will add that I have no intention of replacing my handloaded 405 grain 45-70 rounds with the lighter lever evelotion rounds. But for the 30-30, it's great.

Used it in my 1895 this year. Shoots very tight groups and knocked down a bear and a buck this year. I like it.

Re: Hornady Leverlution Ammo

i have a modern 30/30 (marlin 336sdt) that i have been wanting to try it in so i used my Dicks coupon to buy a box the other day. the 170 corelokts group good in that gun but i am going to give the LE a try. i sometimes see really good prices on it so i just want to see if it groups good. i also want to try the 35 LE ammo in my modern marlin and remington 35's but Dick's didn't have any. the 35 LE ammo is a lot of times cheaper than the corelokts on sale. problem is finding it in the store. the 35 seems tough to find anymore. its a shame cause i love my 35's.
