My new marlin 1895cb loves these hornady leverevolution cartridges. After several rounds there has not been a single issue. Sighted in at 50 and 100 yards with my aging eyes these hornadys landed some very nice groups, very consistent even when the guy holding the gun is not. They chamber through the action effortlessly, smooth as butter. No complaints. Good price for what your getting, I would recommend hornady leverevolution ammo to anyone with a lever rifle.......good stuff.

I have for several decades primarily hunted whitetail deer here in Maine with any of a number of 45-70 Gvt rifles. I always utilized Remington 300 grain semi-jacketed hollow point ammo and of all the deer I took over the years every single one hit with that round dropped hard without ever taking a single step with only one shot. When I went on a moose hunt about 20 years ago however I took my moose 12 minutes into the season with a Marlin 1895SS 45-70 using the same ammo. I shot the moose three times, once through the heart and twice through the lungs. The moose, a 600 pound female, walked off around 50 yards before dropping. This significant change in performance on the larger animal had me concerned as the hollow point rounds expanded so quickly and the energy delivered was less effective in its immediacy. This concern went away with the development and production of Hornady's LeverEvolution 45-70 ammunition. With the powder and bullet design resulting in tremendous increase in energy delivered, increased accuracy, deeper penetration with what is effectively an enhanced hollow point round and overall improved general ballistic performance, I found the ammo that I use every time I go out into the Maine woods in search of big game. The performance of this ammo is fantastic in every way and Hornady's reputation for cutting edge technology in the field of ammunition development shows. I have every confidence in this ammo in any of my 45-70 rifles being more than capable of taking any big game in North America including large dangerous game where immediate and overwhelming stopping power is a matter of life and death. Coupled with a price at Buds that I have not found cheaper anywhere else, either online or at any brick and mortar establishment, make this my absolute favorite and exclusive choice for big game hunting ammunition.

This ammo fired flawlessly in my Henry 45-70. Had to scope the gun due to my old eyes. Zeroed in after 4 rounds(bore sighted). My buddy and I were popping pint water bottles at about 70 yds at will. Remains to be seen what happens on game. It's a large round so I imagine it will do fine. Thanks to Bud's for the fast service. Won't be my last purchase from them.

amazingly accurate out of my rossi rio grande. shot many rounds of winchester 300 grain hollow points with great accuracy also. these hornady loads are far stronger just by muzzle report and free recoil. the confidence of this load in my rifle and the price make this the best whitetail round available for the 45-70
