Dear Hornady,

Thank you very much for creating the LEVERevolution 30-30 ammunition. I love the classic look and function of my Marlin 336C 30-30 but have always considered its effective range and accuracy somewhat limited. However, after learning about and purchasing your 160gr LEVERevolution product, I put a nice scope on it and sighted it in hoping it might be able to become my primary hunting rifle. This season, I used it to bag a 350lb Auodad in South Texas from short range. The animal ran less than 30 yards before dying. Upon cleaning the animal, the bullet was discovered to have opened up beautifully. It had penetrated its chest in its entirety and was lodged in the opposite shoulder. Then, just yesterday I used the 30-30 with this ammunition to reach out and tag my first Whitetail buck at 225 yards! The animal never took a step and dropped right where it was shot. I am very excited to continue using my 30-30 and consider this ammunition excellent at extending its range and being reliably accurate and lethal. It is the only ammunition I will now be using in my rifle. Thank you again for bringing new life to one of my favorite firearms.
