    Hornady leverevolution

    I don't know if this has been touched on before, but I didn't find anything in the search. Does/Has anyone used the hornady leverevolution rounds in a pistol for personal defense? Also would it be like a ballistic point or a regular ball point? I am shooting a SP 101 .357 3"

    I just read up on them the other day..... never knew they existed. I was looking for info on Hornandy and ironically... checking for ammo to use in my Marlin Cowboy rifle. I was wondering if they worked well in the level action rifles.... or had shot them.

    I've used them in my Marlin 30-30 and they do work great. I wouldn't shoot out over 150yards with it but it defiantly extended the range of it. I usually just carry the 30-30 on my Ranger in case I see some pigs or coyotes.

    Thanks, I am going to shop around for some to try. Are they loaded pretty hot?

    I shoot them in my Marlin 30-30 and used to shoot them in my 357 revolver. (Recently sold this pistol...) With a 5 inch barrel, I could hit an 8 inch target out to 50 yards with iron sights consistently. No other ammo, of the 4 types I shoot would do that. I never clocked it, but the recoil told me it was a real Magnum.

    I think the technology in the flex tip is the same as in their Critical Defense ammo, minus the point. I'll bet it expands just the same.
