last fall my dad tried to find this some where near new brunswick.
we tried bass pro in ontario they didn't know what it was anyone have any expirience with the stuff ?
probably going to order some from bass pro
I have heard of this but it is hornady that makes that type of ammunition its called the lever evolution ammo to go with the new 308 from marlin heres a link that may help you get some info for the next time you try to get some from bass pro.
The leverevolution ammo is made for all the tubular calibers such as 30-30, 35 REM., 444 marlin, 45-70, 450 marlin, and the 308 marlin express. It should made these old performers even better. I did inquire once about the possibility that the tip might freeze up and cause a potentially dangerous condition. Hornady said it should be fine to all normal conditions but extreme frigid conditions (-30 deg) may cause the tip to potentially become hard enough to ignite the primer ahead of it in the tube.
Ill stick to my remington shells I was going to switch to winchester xp3s but they are not delivering them to the local shop that is supposed to have them I dont know why but they told me they would have them this monday and I went in today and they said they might have them next week or a year from now LOL tell me thats good news I didnt know what to say to the guy when he said that.
this ammo is on sale in Canada for the first time this year. Just got some for my 35Rem. It has really alowed a futher range for my old rifle. Can't wait for season opener to try it on the deer. Only one store in ThunderBay carries it so far. Me thinks it will be a big hit for those of us carrying the older guns. Check out Hornady LeverEvolution.com for more info. on these bullets, the velocities in comparison to the old ammo. will amaze you.
Elk have been killed close to roads where they could be loaded whole into the bed of a pickup. But it doesn't happen often and I'm not sure that is the experience that I long for. The type of elk hunting that I prefer requires rigorous physical exertion that can cripple someone who is not in shape. Being a college hockey player I have to be in at least fair physical condition most of the year but when one of my buddies got back from the Navy Seals he changed the way I think about physical...
