I've been reading for awhile and thought I would jump in. I'm a life long Alaskan minus 10 long years. Having previously hunted with a 300 Win mag I have picked up a Marlin Guide gun since moving back. As with all my moose hunting in my formal life up here being running rivers and shots being 100 to 250 yards I thought the 45/70 would be a good choice, bears at close quarters being part of the problem as I do get off the river and beat the brush while calling. I searched the archives and did not see anything so would like to ask; any thoughts on the new LeverEvolution ammo, anyone have any experience with Wild West Magnum 457 etc?
Thanks in advance
