Leverevolution Flex Tip question

Has anyone tried these in their 30-30. Do they group well? Has anyone shot deer with them? I was thinking of trying them and was looking for some reports.

Re: Leverevolution Flex Tip question

I shoot them out of my .45/70 Guide Gun and they'll shoot a 3 shot, clover leaf (albeit a big one) off of the bench. Apparently the rifling in the older Marlins don't do well with them? Don't know for sure but I think I heard that about them.

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

Yep, been shooting them out of my Marlin since they hit the market. Gives you a 200 yard range, but I can't seem to get them to pattern very tight. For a while I thought it was my scope, but I've about decided that my gun just doesn't like 'em. Let me know what you turn up.

35 remington shoots great out of my xlr. Very tight groups. Out of my 1965 marlin they shoot horrible. Different twist rate from what I'm told.

Re: Leverevolution Flex Tip question

Thanks to all, I will try them, but from what I've read here,they may not group good. I bought my 336 new in 1970. It will shoot 1 inch group at 100 now with 150gr. original Barnes X, but I can't get them now. The new ones are called Triple Shock.

Re: Leverevolution Flex Tip question

they shot terrible in my 336 30-30 and in the 35 rem. Both were just beyond belief. Both rifles have micro groove riflingin and shoot Rem Green box into 1.3 inches or less at 100 yards. I personally would never buy them or recommend them based upon my experiences. I have a box and half left, need someone local to take them away.

Re: Leverevolution Flex Tip question

didn't marlin change the twist rate in the barrel for the new XLRs? That's what I was told when I bought mine and thats why the new bullets fly different between the new and old rifling.

harrysigafoo, where in sw Pa are you. I'm near Latrobe. Maybe I could buy them from you, if you want to get rid of them.

Re: Leverevolution Flex Tip question

I've been loading them for friends, one in 30-30 one in .35 rem. The 35 rem shot very nice groups, the 30-30 was a consistent 1.5"-2" at 100 so I'll try to tweak that for him a little better before the season.
