Greetings fellow Marlin Addicts and Happy Friday. The March issue of American Rifleman arrived in the mail. They have an interesting article on Hornady's LEVERevolution ammo by the Shooting Editor, Glenn M. Gilbert. The author compares the ammo in 30-30 165gr. to Winchester 170gr. Power Point and in .450 Marlin 325gr to Hornady 350gr Interlock. The increase in trajectory, velocity, and downrange energy of this ammo compared to the standard fodder is impressive. I gotta go buy some. As a bonus, they included a picture of the XLR in .444 Marlin with a silver matte scope and blued mounts. It looks sweet. Anyway, I have no affiliation with Hornady, Marlin, or the American Rifleman aside from being a member of the NRA, I just wanted to share my impressions with some kindred spirits.
