You said you shot an Elk at 500 yards with a 45-70. The ballistic charts
I looked at showed a 30"+ drop at 300 yards (325 gr bullet). It doesn't
show any further data because that was deemed out of it's effective
range. My question is what,why and how? Mostly why. Thanks.
Also why is your font so big? We can hear you loud and clear!

Have you come up with loads that shoot flatter, lighter bullets?
I can't even imagine for myself taking a shot with no brown in the glass.
You standing by that 1000 yard effective range on a 45 70? Did the Bison
die of old age before the bullet got there? With the info that I have found it
just doesn't seem realistic. That's why I'm so interested on how. My Dad has a
Henry 45 70. The few times I've shot it, it seems to drop like a rock at 200+ yds.

I'll give you the 500yds. Doesn't sound like a shot that I would take.
I may not be as big as a Buffalo,
I'll hold a 36" circle target..
