    I see Hornady is making a new 22 mag ammo with a rubber tip I believe. The ballisics seem to good to be true. Does this trajectory seem right? If it is, I think its impressive.

    Trajectory: -1.5 muzzle, -0.6 @ 100yds, 0.0@200yds, and -16.5 @ 300yds

    This is what the Hornady website says. Is this the same trajectory for the 30gr cci vmax as well? Thats flat shooting out to 200yds!!

    What do you think and has anyone shot this ammo yet? Thanks!!

    This sounds like Hornady's Leverevolution ammo made for lever action rifles. I know they make it in .45-70, .35, and .444. Is this the 22 WMR 30 GR V-MAX? If so, the ballistics look pretty doggone good.
    Mississippi allows use of replica breechloaders designed prior to 1890 to be used during primitive weapon deer season. I think this is an attempt to regain hunters who normally don't hunt during the primitive weapon season. Anyway, I have a .44 Mag H&R Handi-rifle breechloader and I'm waiting for the Leverevolution .44 Mag to be released. The Hornady web site shows this cartridge will be released for sale soon and I can't wait to get my hands on some of them. I've seen this ammo on .45-70 make a cloverleaf at 100 yds. in the hands of a good shooter.
