35 Remington

Is anyone familiar with Hornady LeverEvolution .35 Rem 200 Grain Flex Tip Ammo?
I have always shot Remington 200 grrain Core-Lockt Soft Point and can't find any more, but there seems to be plenty of the Hornady.

The NEW Hornady LeverEvolution was designed for the 35 Rem lever gun and I think the 35 is one of the best lever action cal ever made and Hornady should be a super upgrade . The 35 is over looked by many for 30-30 or 45-70 which the 35 will do a better job in my opinion .

I wish they made those, or anything, in .25 Remington.

I've shot my last 8 or 10 elk with 45-70 leverevolution 325 grain ammo. My only complaint is they have a tendency to come apart. I'm a meat hunter so my shots are broadside, behind the meat of the front quarter, rib bones are the only bones I'm hittin. End result of course is still dead elk but when I'm thru with the couple boxes I have left I'll probably switch to something that stays together a little better. They do shoot well, and they don't kick like a mule!

I had a 336C in 35 that I sold so I could get a dedicated deer shotgun with a scope and rifled BBL. Wish I had hung on to it as it was a fine rifle. The area I live in is shotgun, handgun (certain calibers) or muzzleloader only and I figured with all the rifles I have I didn't need it. Still have the shotgun 23 years later and I have taken several deer with it.

I could be wrong I think the leverevolution was designed to fly flatter , faster and go farther then the standard round with less recoil in a tube magazine gun .

I think yer right on tgr. The pointed bullets are more aero dynamic and the rubber tips allow them to be used in tubular magazines without the catastrophic results of classic pointed ammo in tubular mags.

Up to 250 feet per second faster muzzle velocity than conventional lever gun loads.
Exceptional accuracy and overwhelming downrange terminal performance.
LEVERevolution bullet featuring Flex Tip Technology.
Up to 40% more energy than traditional flat point loads.

As TGR mentions, the main advantage of the Hornady lever loads is flatter shooting and better energy retention. I shot quite a bit of the stuff in 30-30 back when I was shooting a lot of lever guns. Turns the 30-30 into a legit 200 yard deer gun. I think it would be a great choice for farm country hunting.

Kind of a mixed bag as far as how they shot in my Marlins, though. Some of the Marlins loved the ammo, as in one inch groups at 100 yards and some hated it as in three inch groups. Never knew what to expect in any gun. Just had to try and see with each gun.

Doesn't sell all that well, up here, in our north woods, though. No need for that extra range - 50 yards is a long shot most of the time - and the ammo is expensive. Have heard some hunters complain about questionable bullet performance and/or destroying too much meat, but others like the ammo and swear by it.

Interesting about the 35 Remington. Has never been a popular cartridge in our woods and ammo is very hard to find. Have a friend in New Hampshire, though who tells me the 35 is more common than the 30-30 and you can buy ammo anywhere.

I use it in both of my .44 magnum model 1894 Marlins. But as far as shooting a deer with it, I have only had the opportunity to shoot one and that was at about 40 yards, as the deer was standing between two trees that were close together and affording me a very narrow line of fire. One shot in the heart-lung area and it circled one time and dropped dead. Most, I have shot with the .30-06. I believe that the last time that I bought the LEVERevolution 225 grain, box of 20, was $27.00 around here.

Hornady uses old ammo data to make their claims of faster/higher energy than "traditional" ammo. No question with the more aerodynamic design it will be a bit flatter shooting, but we're talkin about an under 200 gun, and at those ranges the difference will be minimal. One of the biggest complaints with most ballistic tipped bullets is the lack of an exit hole at times, due to the bullet coming apart, leaving you with a poor blood trail. Some will say the bullet expends all its energy on the animal, but if you're shooting from an elevated position and get no exit hole, the lung cavity has to fill to the entrance hole before before much hits the ground. That could be 100+yds in that lush southern vegetation you hunt in.

Here's a comparable modern round that isn't a ballistic tip. The numbers are similar and the round will hold together and pass thru.

Even the classic federal power shok ammo is only 145 fps slower with only a 5% reduction in energy at the muzzle. But it'll hold together and pass thru with good mushrooming.
