"Garrett Cartridges is a specialty company offering only two cartridges, the 44 Magnum and the 45-70 and mostly in Heavy Duty versions for hunting. One of Randy Garrett's customers, Vince Lupo, is one of the world's biggest fans of the 45-70 and the Marlin 1895, and has practically made a career out of hunting in Africa with a Marlin 45-70 loaded with Garrett's ammunition. He has taken everything, and I do mean everything from the smallest antelope to all of Africa's Big Six and done so very decisively. When the same rifle and cartridge can be used for impala, zebra, waterbuck, kudu, eland, leopard, lion, elephant, rhino, hippo, and Cape buffalo, it may be as old as the 1870s but it is still as modern as the 21st century. Garrett's original 45-70 loads are called Hammerheads- this is most appropriate as they hit like the very hammer of Thor. Hammerheads are loaded with hard-cast gas-checked bullets and are currently offered in 420 and 540-gr versions, the latter especially for deep penetration on really big game and the former for thin skinned game. He recommends the 420-gr Hammerhead load available in 1,650-fps and 1,850-fps versions, for thin-skinned game up to 1,500 pounds and he also has a 350-gr SuperJack, using the Woodleigh bonded-core JSP at 2,000-fps for game up to about 1,200 pounds. For those preferring full jacketed solids, Garrett loads a 500-gr flatnose solid, the Exiter. These are all serious loads for serious hunting and Randy says of his 45-70 Exiter ammo, "It provides the very best in bone-busting capability, for those in pursuit of elephant, rhino, and hippo, with its superb Hornady Copper Clad Steel Jacketed solid. This one clocks out at 1,530-fps while the 540-gr Hammerhead is rated at 1,550-fps.” - John Taffin, GUNS MAGAZINE – 2009 Special Edition
