Question by hunt and fish. Uploaded on October 31, 2010
i really like the hornady leverrution ammo. it can reach 200 yards. which is much longer and itmis quality ammo
Yes, the LEVERevolution 160 grain Flex Tip ammo is sensational, and can be loaded in a tubular magazine safely, although the spire-point bullets are in contact with the primers of the cases ahead of them.
This ammo is just the thing for the one-gun hunter who wants to stretch the range of his levergun.
my friends dad used to have leverevolution and it jamed bad in his model 94.
i think he said cause of the "flex tip" also my dads other friend said it jamed in his 444 marlin. but they both said it shoots good but it jams alot
I've shot a lot of whitetail with the Remington 150 Gr. Core-lokt bullet and all have been 1 shot and down. From my Winchester M-94 with a receiver sight my groups are excellent and consistent.
yea, one of the two jams my dad had with his .30-30 was with the Hornady when we went out to the mountains a few days ago, he was jacking shells out to unload, and one stuck halfway between the tube and the chamber.
however, he can also shoot 1.5 MOA out to 350 yards with his; he only shoots that now.
I have used Hornady Flex Tip Ammo in my Marlin 30/30,
Marlin 35 Rem,Marlin 44 Mag,Remington M141 Pump 35Rem
Savage 170c Pump 30/30, Ruger autoloader 44Mag, AND Never had one of My Guns JAM-UP.Some club members with Win 94s didn't have any jams with the Flex tips
Thay did say ther guns never shot better!
I like the Hornadys in my .32wnspl. and think they'd be my choice in the .30/30 as well. Otherwise, i'd go with a good 150gr that the gun likes.
i been using the hornady leverevlotion 160 gr out of my marlin mod 30 as groups excellent at 1oo and 2oo yards but it shoots almost a foot high at 50 yards and i adjusted the sight as much as it will go anyone got a answer to that ?
