« on: May 24, 2006, 03:54:51 PM »
i have been shooting the new leverevolution out of my marlin 444 & marlin 30/30. it make's the 30/30 like a 300 mag no b.s, at the range took two block's of 4x4 (post) about 16in long and shot blocks with my 444 anybody need toothpick's. . this new ammo is going to bring back the lever gun love it.  note. new ammo in 444 rifle must be 1 & 20 twist to shoot new ammo. 30/30 any twist dont know about 45/70 are 450 ?

Don't suppose you'd know if you can reload those round, do you? I'm wondering if the .428 ammo will fit in my .44mag that uses .430 ammo. ??? If it'll work, I'm gonna have to see about picking some up. :twisted:

 I DONT KNOW MY BUD THAT OWNS THE GUN/AMMO SHOP IS CHECKING INTO IT .  I WOULD SAY YES I THINK THE HARD THING IS GOING TO BE IS GETTING THE POWDER ?. I WILL LET YOU KNOW AS SOON AS I FIND OUT.

i think they have a new powder just for leverevolution ammunition . they say new propellant provide's up to 250 fps more muzzle velocity at sake pressers, resulting in flatter trajectories and up to 40% more energy.  www.hornady.com   check out the shooting clip of new ammo.  and found out shpuld not store in tubular magazines for extended periods, as this can result in deformation.   ALL I KNOW IS THIS I HAVE SHOT THE NEW AMMO IN 30/30 & 444. AND IT KICK'S SOME A##. I'M NOT A PRO AT ANYTHING WHEN IT COMES TO RELOADING/BALLIST STUFF. I DO KNOW WHAT THIS IT'S THE BEST DAM# ROUND I HAVE EVER SHOOT OUT OF A LEVER GUN AND I THING I HAVE SHOT THEM ALL. so if you buy some let me know what you think.

is hornady selling those new style bullets to reloaders?

According to my sources, at Gander Mountain, the bullets will not be available for a few more months.  They are still trying to get the ammo on the shelves.
I have long know that it is part of God's plan for me to spend a little time with each of the most stupid people on earth.

I see you're playing stupid again...  looks like you're winning too.

You'll have to have special dies for the hornady ammo as I've never heard of pointed ammo for either cartridge before this. On the other hand, I'm sure that as soon as the bullets become available for reloading, you'll see the special die made, if it hasn't been already.
