Default 44 Mag LEVERevolution

Has anyone tried this new225gr. FTX in their gun yet. Is it as good as they say?

Have not tried the 44mag, but My Marlin 336 loves the 30-30 loads and my dad has a H&R Handi Rifle in 45-70 that consistently groups around an inch at 100 yards with them.

This is what I am going to try in my Taurus Ragin Bull .44 revolver.

If I could find it somewhere without having to order it..........the last 2 gun shops I've been in had no idea what I was even talking about.

I have been using it in a Henry Big Boy .44 mag. with fantastic results. I have also used the 30-30, 45-70, 357 and 444. This LE ammo is great stuff.

I just may have to give them a try in my 1894 Marlin. If they shoot, that may be a fun deer combo come this season.

It is amazing how much more range I am getting out of my 30-30. I really like my LeveRevolution shells.

Absolutly amazing results in my .44 mag! The only thing that worries me is the pointed tip, so i shoot one @ a time. Probably being OVERLY cautious, but rightfully so. Can anyone assure me they are safe to load in tube magazine? Anyways, amazing distance and quite the deer thumper!

They were made for lever guns. Smash the tip on a hard surface. It is more like a rubber than a plastic.
