both my dad and I have tried them. he is shooting an H&R handi rifle in 45-70 and loves the LEVERevolution round. I tried them in my Marlin 336W 30-30 both of us had extremely good accuracy out of them. 3 shots about an inch in both guns at 100 yards. I'm impressed... next let's see how they do on game. According to what I;ve read so far they should do fine

You won't find the LeverEvolutions in .32 Special. I've been using them in .444 Marlin for quite awhile. They are the bugs nuts. Very satisfied.

the bugs nuts? I don't know if i'd want something if it's the 'bugs nuts'.

I'll be picking up some leverevolotution for my marlin here in the near future. I'm having surgery on my neck next week and cannot have the jolt of my .270. maybe i'll finally kill a deer w/ that old lever action.

I've tried them in my .450 and they shoot great in it. Though the old Hornady blunt nose shot really good in it as well. The advantage of the new bullets is they have a lot less drop. I wouldn't hesitate to shoot anythingout to 200 yards with my .450. The dead tree we use to sight in our guns shakes when we shoot the .450. We can shoot a .300 WM and it doesn't move but you shoot it with the .450 and you can see it shake. I've found they work great on large pigs I can shoot straight through them even through the shield, on some of the smaller guns the bullet would stop under the skin on the far side.
