Excellent Long Distance Ammo
Review by Eric

I shot a Hog at 296 Yards with this ammo. I have a Marlin 30-30 with an Omega BDC scope. Sighted it in at 100 yards with a tight group of 1" with 6 rounds. took the shot and dropped the hog in its tracks 2 weeks later. This ammo is every thing Hornady says it is. It truly turns my 30-30 from a brush gun to a long distance gun. (Posted on 11/21/14)

Very accurate in my Marlin 336, was able to produce a tight 1.5 inch 3 shot group at 100 yrds. Hunted white-tailed deer and boar with this round 3 white-tailed does on different hunts all dropped in sight of my stand ,also shot a boar with this round it was a 1 shot kill , they do cost more than other 30-30 rounds , but the performance is worth it. At this rate I have 16 more kills left in this box of 20, considering hunting black bear and even elk with it next year.. (Posted on 8/13/13)

This stuff is among the very best 30/30 rifle ammo you can buy. As with all ammo right now, the price sucks. (Posted on 4/29/13)

purchased the ammo and was at the range that weekend. I shoot mossberg 464spx, 3 shots at 50 yd, rifle set approx. 2" high at 12 oclock. 100 yds rifle dead on. raised 2 clicks and shot about 1" high at 100 yds. 2nd day Mich. hunt dropped my deer at 67 yds (range finder said so} shot looks to be 3" above my aim point, the deer stumbled 20 yds and dropped. Great , great ammo. Coyotes are next on the list (Posted on 12/3/12)
Expensive, but worth it!

This stuff is just amazing in my Marlin 336. I zeroed my scope for 100 yards with 150gr CoreLokt, and these shoot 2" high, just like the box says. They give me another 75 yards of range before I have to start compensating.
I haven't used them for hunting, so I can't comment on their knock-down power, but they're accurate, consistent, and always go BANG! when I pull the trigger.
The ONLY downside is their cost, but then after coming up with something this good, Hornady needs to recover their development and testing cost, or we won't ever see innovative products like this again! (Posted on 10/25/12)

so far I have put down 4 coyotes at 100 yds or better. The deer season isn't open yet, but I am sure the leverevolution won't let me down. I am still looking long and hard for 300 savage superformance shells, but as yet only hornady has them @ 40$/per box. I save all my brass but do not reload as yet (Posted on 10/20/12)

Best ammo I've used to extend my effective range on my old reliable 30-30. Increased my confidence at 200+yards for the upcoming deer season. Highly recommend. (Posted on 9/27/12)
Definitely extends the usable range

I just don't expect to find any Hornady Leverevolution rounds at a bargain price. What I do expect is to get maximum performance out of the old lever gun. This stuff delivers.
The word must be out ... it is getting hard to find at something close to affordable. I use Hornady in my old .44 Mag lever gun also and it is impressive.
I find the prices hard to beat, even at gun shows, and the delivery to the front door in 2 to 3 days for a reasonable price is alway right on. Great service. (Posted on 7/11/12)

Q: The flex tip bullet should provide noticeably better velocity, especially at distances over 100 yards. Would you have a chart or resource that compared terminal ballistics (like FPE and velocity at x yards) compared with a more traditional .30-.30 slug? Thanks in advance, troy

Posted On: 10/20/11 By: Troy

A: With muzzle velocities of 2400fps, both 160gr FTX and 170gr RN will be 2 inches high at 100 yards. But the FTX will be traveling 160fps faster and has about 160ft-lbs more energy. At 200 yards, the FTX is 2" low, while the 170 is 3.5" low. Velocities are 1900 and 1600 fps, respectively. Energy, 1308 ft-lbs versus 982 ft-lbs. By 300 yards, the FTX has dropped 16 inches, while the 170gr RN has dropped 23. Velocities are 1702fps and 1311 fps, energy 1029 for the FTX and 648 for the 170gr RN. In other words, the FTX has more velocity and energy at 300 yards than the 170gr RN does at 200 yards. Hope this helps.
Q: Hi there, I have a question about this type of bullet in tubular magazines, I am a future expat, and I'm looking at buying a nice 30-30 marlin lever gun to take with me to Argentina as a good survival / hunting rifle, and I know there have been issues with pointed bullets hitting the primer of the cartridge in front in tubular magazine that cause them to ignite and go off in the magazine. Is there something i can do to guard against this happening in my lever guns ? Are these safe to use because of the new innovative " flex " tip ? Thanks, - Henry .

Posted On: 10/2/11 By: Anonymous

A: Yes, these Hornady FTX projectiles are safe to use in a lever action rifle. It is doubtful that you would find any factory-produced .30-30 that was unsafe for use in a tubular magazine. While this is certainly something to be aware of and avoid, it is doubtful that this has happened - unless someone handloaded ammunition with pointed bullets and then loaded them into a tubular magazine.
Q: Is the OAL of the Leverevelution cartridges any longer than that of a traditional cartridges?

Posted On: 9/30/11 By: Darin

A: The OAL of LeverEvolution cartridges is the same as standard cartridges, so they'll work in the same actions. The cases are slightly shorter to allow the FTX bullet to have a cannelure in the right location. If you reload these cases, be sure to use LeverEvolution bullets.
Q: Not long after this ammo came out there was a recall. Do you know how they modified the rounds to avoid the problem they were having?

Posted On: 9/30/11 By: Artos

A: One lot of .30-30 Leverevolution ammo was underloaded and not to spec. That lot number is 3060134 and the ammunition was produced in 2006. All ammunition produced since then, including what we have in stock, has been made to the proper velocity specifications.
Q: Is the Hornady better quality than Federal? What are the benefits of purchasing better quality past for example some of the cheaper being dirtier?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Stephen McCollum

A: Both Hornady and Federal are high quality ammo manufacturers. You might find that the Hornady ammo is slightly more accurate. Neither one would be considered "dirty."
Q: Are these rounds California Condor corridor compliant?

Posted On: 9/28/11 By: Chad

A: No, this is not lead free ammunition. Look for ammunition loaded with the Barnes TSX or TTSX bullets/projectiles.
