  1. New 336C 30-30 - Hornady Leverevolution Case Splits & Grouping Issues

    336
    Hi all. Owner of a Marlin 336C in 30-30 having some issues, I’m not exactly sure how to rectify. To keep it brief, bought a new 336C a few months ago. And I have only had 4 sessions with it at the range (eventually to add to the hunting tools). I got a bulk buy of Hornady Leverevolution 30-30...
  2. Loading Leverevolution for the 30-30 160g ftx

    Reloading
    Hi. I'm new here. I had a few questions and ideas about the lever evolution 160g ftx for the 30-30s. The 30-30 rcbs dies were designed for a round or flat nose bullet. When i load the leverevolutions it leaves a ring around the projectile approximately 9mm down from the tip. So this is...
  3. Leverevolution vs. Speer hot core

    The .35 Remington
    I'm planning a 4 day NY black bear hunt/back country camping trip in september. I'd like to take the 35rem. The factory 200 gr leverevolution shoots consistently 1/2-3/4 moa. I just started reloading with the 200 grain ftx (leverevolution) bullets and can only imagine it will become more...

  5. Pushing the Limits of the Marlin 336 (or, How my .30-30 Got the AX)

    Ranger Point Precision
    I got to wondering recently. Typically, if that goes on long enough, the ol’ measuring stick comes out, then unusual credit card charges begin to appear, and before you know it, there’s a fresh pile of chips on the mill table. Sometimes a small pile of discarded parts sacrifice themselves to the...

  7. 30-30 and elk

    Big Game
    Planning on hunting elk this fall with my 336 in 30-30. I've done enough research to know the following: 1. No, this isn't the "ideal" elk gun 2. 30-30 will do the job at the right range with the right placement That said, this is the only gun I've got, and I'm going elk hunting. I'll keep...
  8. Scope and Hornady LE ammo

    336
    My wife's 336 is scoped with the standard factory scope that came with her 336 package. While trying to site it in with LE ammo this year, it got to where I couldn't adjust the scope anymore and the LE was shooting around 6 inches high at 100 yds. So where do I go from here? Shim the scope? Buy...
  9. Need info regarding Hornady Leverevolution rounds for my 1894ss

    1894
    Greetings. Just bought a beautiful 1894ss manufactured in 2002. Picked up some Hornady Leverevolution rounds (plastic tip) and headed to the range. When I got ready to load the gun I found that only one shell would go into the tube at a time. The first one when in real slick then the second...
  10. New Mexico Oryx & the 45/70

    The 45/70 Govt.
    I have an off-range Oryx tag for Jan 1 - {400-500 pounds, up to 300 yard shot} I am planning on a 250-300+ yard shot and am assuming I may use my 270WSM. I would love to use my 45-70 if I can find what I need before then. Who here would use their 45/70 for this hunt What would you use if...
  11. Field results for Gummy Tips (LeverEvolution) - care to share?

    336
    OK, they've been out awhile now, and you guys have probably shot a bunch of deer and bear; how's the terminal performance? What's the general consensus? Obviously I can test accuracy in my own gun, but what about in the field terminal results? Can I get some real world feedback? Looking...
