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.

Levereolution ammo

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.

I think it would be fine for 99% of all hunting situations. I think it really brings out the ballistic potential of these "older" calibers.

That is exactly why I started reloading. Around here you shoot with whatever you can find and I like to shoot what my rifle likes not what has the biggest profit margin for the store.

Hornady leverevolution

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. Yes
