I had poor results using hornady ammo before so was reluctant in spending the money for their Leverevolution ammo...but now I am glad I did. This was 100 yards out of my Marlin Guide gun with a new 2-7x Redfield Revolution. I think I found a new bear killer

What caliber? I just got a .450 marlin ans was planning on trying that ammo. That looks promising!

Wow! That's a sweet group. I wish my Marlin 1894 in .44 mag grouped half that well with Hornady Leverevolution ammo. Best I get is about a 5" five shot group at 100 yards. I say I'd sure use that load you have for anything!

Nice group. The Lever Evolutions shot horrible out of my .444 Marlin. I think I need a newer gun without the micro groove barrel.

Those were the last of the two shot groups as I was dialing in the Redfield. The scope was new so the first 3 groups were off the paper but both shots were touching in all 5 groupsIi shot. I don't have another rifle that will cloverleaf all shots like this combo does.

Leverlution ammo in my 35 Rem Model 336 shoots Great!!!!Now I hear that the older 30/30 model 336 don't shot as well since it just does not have the right rate of twist.. So much so that even Marlin sales the more expensive 30/30 with the correct rate of twist. So...if you have the correct rate of twist in your gun...The Leverlution should shoot well...I know I'm going to use it in my old model 336 35 Rem.

I scraped up 5 rounds of it to try before I buy a whole box and find out it doesn't shoot well. Hopefully I get to test it out this weekend. I'll post my results.

My 45/70 GG shoots them very well too. I wish I would have taken a pic of my target. They printed a clover leaf @ 100 yds off the bench. They are pretty impressive when they mushroom too.
