Summertime 45-70 Gov’t Handload Tuneup +P loads for the Marlin Model 1895 Guide Gun

I like machines. They have no attitudes, they have no agendas and how they perform and react is always logical. When it doesn’t appear that way, it is only because there is something we’ve overlooked or don’t understand. Persistence in problem solving will always prove the previous to be true. So my chipper won’t start…

Lighter 45-70 Gov’t Loads For Deer and Black Bear A chance to actually enjoy shooting a big bore lever gun

The title suggests that a 45-70 Gov’t shooter can elect to use milder cartridges and still decisively kill deer and black bear; ammo that generates less recoil and ear splitting report. However, within five minutes of publishing, someone will pose the question, “Why would deer and bear need light 45-70 loads? Are they too lazy…
