We should all be so lucky! Welcome to the forum from Alabama. The 308 will kill anything around here. Tell your son, 'Excellent hunt, excellent shot'.

Many thanks for your reply.

I just started reloading my own rounds for the 45 70, any advice? I am battling with the crimping stage, using a Lee 50th anerversary kit.

Welcome to the Marlin Forum. Pretty friendly bunch around here.
I don't load 45/70s but there are those on here that do.

It's good to see a youngster with good shooting skills. You have taught him well.
I too have a 45-70. and here is a picture of an elephant that I shot at 75 yards. I am sure it was not as thrilling as the zebra kill.

Gumpy, I couldn't help it. when I got my 45 70
my son in law asked me what we were going
to shoot with such a big gun.
I laughed and said I have an elephant. :D

Hey thanks guys. I figured out the issue when crimping the projectiles. I used Hornaday brass and its too short for the press. Were off to the farm this weekend again, will send pics.
