    Only shot one deere so far with the LE's but it worked as well as one could ask for.

    If your gun shoots the LEs good, they are WELL worth the difference. I would test them at 200 yards or more though, as they cross the mach 2 line between 100 and 200 yards, which can introduce some instability into the trajectory.

    The LEs shoot 1 hole groups in my 336C at 100 yards, but that opens up to about 3" at 200 yards, where as both Fed and Win 170s shoot 1" groups at 100 yards, but open to only 2" at 200 yards.

    Anyway, that's been my experience with them, but as you know, all rifles and riflemen are different. JMO.

    To educate yourself ,you need to "try" a box of Lever-E ammo. Other folks opinions are made up of their results . Doesn`t mean you`ll get the same . Some Marlins don`t respond well to Lever-E ammo. Only one way to find out!
    The best part of the hunt is not the harvest but in the experience.

    Ordered myself a box of 160 grain LE today. We'll just see how they do.

    My 30-30 loves them. They will probably shoot about 3" to 4" higher then your other ammo at 100yrds ,they did in my gun.
    Marlins make great memories!

    I love the LE 160 gr 30-30. I came across some at Dick's before Christmas on sale for $17 a box, had a $10 gift card and bought three boxes to add to what I already had. I wish I would have bought all of them now. The LE shoots about three inches high and an inch to the left of the POI at 100 yards, of the 170 gr Core-Lokts and Federal ammo that I use also.

    I use the LE's in my scoped 35 and 170 gr. Winny's in my 30 30's with steel sights(one peep and one factory issue). I like the extra range with the scoped rifle, but find the "old fashion" bullets shoot and work better at open sight ranges.

    Have you considered handloading? Every ammo dollar provides three times as much shooting.

    Hornady is great in some guns, others not so good. I'll use whatever my gun likes including hand loaded. Performance supposedly is superior with the Hornady, but accuracy trumps velocity for me.
