Re: Deadliest mushroom in the woods

45-70's are def a knockdown kinda gun for short range and easy to carry compared to my 300 win mag. They drop quickly at 200 yards, but the devastation they do is unreal. Petty cool, thanks for sharing this info.

the 45/70 with factory loads is actually quite tame compared to '06's, etc. i use it because i really like the gun, marlin 1895G guidegun. it is short and handy. you can load the 45/70 up to elephant gun level but i don't. the factory loads are quite sufficient. they do have somewhat of a rainbow trajectory but i only shoot 50-75 yards mostly anyway.

Re: Deadliest mushroom in the woods

Those slugs must be flukes according to some of the pundits on here, need at least a Nosler Parttion or Barnes to kill deer.

ya to each his own but those high-end bullets are a waste of money in my opinion. the corelokts, silvertips, etc are all you need for PA deer.

I've used all three of them on deer. And I wouldn't use any of them on Moose because they're all too low powered for my tastes. You can do amazing things with .45-70 handloads but in factory dress my .30-06 smokes the above mentioned loads in power.

I have one that looks identical to that, a 300 Sierra.



The goat was quartering away uphill about 50 yard away. The bullet entered about 8" low just behind the last rib on the left, angled up and forward then lodged just under the right "armpit" (leg pit??? ) under the hide. She traveled about 20 yards then "Perspired".

Re: Deadliest mushroom in the woods

I would imagine getting hit with 300 grains of lead would make anything "perspire" shortly before it "expired". I had a mushroom form a 7mm mag that my buddy shot a bear with, that was the most perfect nice mushroom you could ever ask for. Those core lockts get the job done!

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright
