Not really. I'm the wrong person to ask that question of though.

Lever actions have more parts moving so more things ro break/blow apart. Ruger #1 also has ALOT more metal surrounding the cartridge in one solid piece
No who works at rem/ marlin for pr. Now u know why I said that

Well the 45/70 isnt really a step up, look into the 375 h&h, the 416 rigby, 458 win mag. U said big bore. But big bore an cheap are never in the same frame. Best plan on a re loader.

I have several big bores that I have used in africa, the 500 nitro express, an a 458 win mag . After 8 shots from the 458 I had a hell of a crick in my neck, not fun to shoot. Just be ready for a sore neck an shoulder.
