A group of family and friends were hunting elk this fall near my home in Jackson, Wyoming. My brother-in-law Bud elected to use my .45-70 Marlin Guide Gun with Hornady .45-70 LEVERevolution ammunition for his hunt. He was successful, taking his cow elk at about 200 yards. The recovered bullet had expanded well, and had a retained weight of 279 grains. During this hunting trip, there were six of us hunting and five successful hunters.
