How many here have tried the Hornady LEVERevalution???
I have bought both the 30-30 and the .35 rem. but haven't tried then at the range.
Because I Reload;
I have, however, tried the Hornady FTX bullets. My only complaint is that Hornady's recommended load data is about 200 fps slower than the Factory Ammo.
Because of my age and physical problems, my hunting isn't what it used to be nor near what I would like it to be. Just the way it is.

I have not been able to match the accuracy of FTX bullets in any of my lever action rifles. Fom
Most people do not realize that the LVR powder you buy is not the same powder used in all calibers of Leverevolution ammunition. I wrote Hornady and they replied that their powder blends for Leverevolution ammo are caliber specific and I cant get the same velocities out of my 338 MXLR by using LVR as factory achieves. I have found this to be true. The only powder I have found that will match factory velocity in my 338 with FTX is AA2520. Fom
