just got a new blue guide in 4570. i am beginning to really like it. how many of you guys use the 4570 as your main rifle and what do you hunt with it?

I've considered the 45-70 Guide Gun for deer and black bear in north Georgia, but my Marlin 35 Remington has too strong a grip on my heart. I think the 45-70 would be a natural brush gun.

you have a great gun and in a great caliber! a nice straight walled cartridge like the 45-70 is a great candidate for reloading, especially in the marlin which can be loaded to a higher level then what is generally commercially availible. I have a marlin lever in .444 marlin and a handi rifle in 45-70 they are well suited for medium to close range hunting of all game in the lower 48.;)

I've got a Marlin 1895M .450 Marlin which is very similar to yours. I love it!! I consider it a little overkill for deer hunting, but bought the gun to hopefully one day fulfill my dream of hunting Grizzley.

Proud owner of a Guide Gun for about 10 years. Winchester factory 300 gr HP's work fine for thin skinned game. My hand loaded/personally cast 340 gr flat point at 2100 fps is a beast. Large (300+ lbs) feral hogs drop in their tracks.
