It will be for hunting. I figured small game I could just use a 22lr. The 45 70 you could pretty much slowed down to a 45 colt if need be for small game hunting and loaded heavy for deer and bear where the .357 has it`s lmits.What's your primary use gonna be?
Do you reload?
I really like the 45 Colt actions but they're tough to come by in a very expensive.Well, you did post this in the 45-70 forum, so sub-conciously you've already decided.
I love my 1895G. Leupold scout scope, xs ghost rings, slimmed down for end. Personally I don't have much use for 357. I fell in love with 45colt as a pistol caliber a long time ago.
I can not really expand on the information I gave about the .38Sp/.357 Magnum and 45-70 without a writing a book lol. But I will say that if I was thinking about the 45 Colt or 454 Casull I would get the 45-70 as for lots of my own reasons I feel the 45-70 is far better than both of them.Have you already have a Howitzer a 338 Lapua 32 in barrel, they make abmess of deer inside 300 meters.
I really don't need either. I have been kicking it around between a 357, 45 70, 45 Colt, 454 Casull.
I'm going to have to vote for the .45-70. It would have to be something real special for me to pay 1K for the .357.The 45-70 gg is $600 and the .357 is $1000. I'm thinking of getting the 45-70 gg and cutting the barrel down to 16-1/4" and change the lever.
