I shot my Guide gun today with a load I think I'm gonna like for thickass woods hunting for deer.

355 grain cast at 1355 fps, using AA5744. Kicked less than the .308 Howa LW I was also zeroing with a load using a 155 Scenar.

That's a change, and it still shows evidence of being lethal, at least at one end. Shot it a few times, no bruised shoulder and no headache.

I may move up to 405 grain bullets which would pretty much emulate the original BP loading.

There's something about the .45-70 I just like.

BP-B2

The standard 405 gr 45-70 load is awesome, and is highly addictive and will do anything you need very handily. Go heavier and the recoil starts to get unpleasant fast

Yea, I've tried a 540 grainer at 1550 fps, and my "standard" load is a 436 grain bullet at 1679 fps, and also tried a 300 grain HP at 2200 fps, all are obnoxious in the recoil department, 10 or so rounds and that's it.

I could shoot the 355/1355 load all day.

I bet it'll still fully penetrate an animal bigger than a whitetail.

Yup


Safe queens should be taken out and shot!

My guide gun is set up with factory sights, warne 1 piece base, leupold qrw rings and a leupold vx3 1.5-5 with no4 reticle. I load 405 laser cast over 38gr of 3031. Cloverleafs 3 at 100.

Bullet weight and velocity give recoil. I shoot the Speer 300 grain over a full charge of Re7 in my 1895XLR.
I have an original 1879 Springfield carbine that was re-lined by Bob Hoyt and the 405 jsp at 1240 fps is way milder to shoot but trajectory drops of quickly compared to the full power loads in the Marlin.

Any idea of the velocity you are getting with 38 grains of 3031?
