What about the POWERMAX!!!! ammo? Anyone tried it?

Just kidding. Back when I was a hunter and shot a few deer in the early 2000's, I used the Hornady LeverEvolution 160 grain a good bit. It's a very good choice and was always quite accurate in my .30/30.

I guess now the name calling has started, I’ve been called much more than idiot in my lifetime. I’m just pushin what works and when it comes to the 30-30, I highly doubt anyone kills as many game animals per year with it than I. I’d have to put the figure from 40-200 animals per year depending on if its what I feel like using that particular year. This is across the United States on all kinda critters. Give Powermax a whirl, I won’t even ask for an apology.

Post Script: that figure above ^^^^ is with the 30-30, it could be up to 1000 animals with different calibers, bow, and spear, per year. I am a lucky man. I killed around thirty boar hogs this year using 410 Brenneke slugs from a 410, all one shot drops. This stuff is how I entertain myself.

Note to self: If I only could go back to killing ragheads instead of big game animals in my retirement, I’d subject myself to much less guff, write Trump.

150 grain Corelokts, I bet I have killed 50-75 deer with marlin 30-30. Deer have always traveled less distance then 30-06 or 7 mag or 270. I shoot em bow style double lungs and I guess bullet is slower and more energy is felt as it passes through boiler room.
