UP­DAT­ING THE LEVER CAR­TRIDGE LOOK

Home Defender - - Home Defender -

A huge rea­son bolt ac­tions be­came more pop­u­lar with hunters than lever guns is that bolt ac­tions could use pointed bul­lets that shot flat­ter, far­ther and did a bet­ter job car­ry­ing re­tained en­ergy.

Now Hor­nady has up­dated the tra­di­tional flat-nosed bul­let pro­file by adding a poly­mer tip in their LEVERevo­lu­tion line of ammo that al­lows these bul­lets to be safely loaded in tube mag­a­zine ri­fles. With a pointed bul­let, Hor­nady has achieved higher BCs (bal­lis­tic co­ef­fi­cient) for im­proved ac­cu­racy, more down­range en­ergy and a flat­ter tra­jec­tory.

And although those fac­tors may not be a con­cern for home de­fense, they are im­por­tant if you are think­ing about ask­ing your hunt­ing ri­fle to dou­ble as your home de­fense weapon.

Hor­nady’s LEVERevo­lu­tion ammo is avail­able in a wide va­ri­ety of cal­ibers and bul­let grain weights.
