I recently bought a Marlin Guide Gun in .45-70 Gov't., and i'm interested in opinions about loads for Alaska. I have spent time in Alaska but never hunted there. I do have several years experience hunting and shooting, and i've functioned as a back up hunter, or a P.H. for inexperienced and new hunters. My area of Tennessee has an abundance of black bear and wild boar, so the hunting isn't exactly dull. I'm also a handloader. I load for the Guide Gun and also for my .308. Any recommendations are appreciated. Also, I have an interest in becoming a Guide and/or a P.H. in Alaska.
