I have a a 336 in 30-30 and with the blunt nosed stuff I keep about a 2.5moa off the bench with it. With the Leverrevoluton it brings it down to about 1.25-1.75" groups at 100yds. It's an easily noticeable improvement without making any other improvements to the rifle. I like the stuff, wish I could re-load with bullets like this...haven't been shopping lately, but has HOrnady come out with bullets for reloading yet?

They didn't work so bad on this little fella (sorry for all the blood we had to drag the bugger quite aways and it looks a lot worse than it was.) This was with the 45-70 rounds out of a marlin cowboy

30-30 160 grain

My Dad took a nice mule deer at 50 yards and I shot a whitetail at about 20 yards. Both showed devistating expansion and immediate kills.

At the short ranges, neither bullet existed but internal damage was huge. I suspect at longer ranges the expansion would be a little less but they would probably exit the animal. In the 30-30, it has become our still hunting gun\bullet of choice.

I hope they release the bullets for reloading, also.
