new hornady leverevolution ammo?
first off, torture and a screaming death to the marketing person who came up with that name.
for those that haven't seen the ads (just saw my first one in the latest guns 'n ammo mag), it looks like a good concept. take a pointed round, which usually you can't safely put in a lever action, put what seems to be the equivalent of a hard plastic tip on the bullet, thereby making it safe.
looks like it just turns the bullet into a filled hollow point.
factory (ha!) numbers are 30-30 160 gr. at 2400 fps at the muzzle, and 45-70 325 gr. at 2325 fps.
now...anyone actually seen this stuff yet?
