I certainly would reconsider the two cartridges you mentioned. Expensive to start with and the 45-70 is not for most new shooters and hunters. Has some recoil compared to other good deer calibers like the 270, 308, 30-06, 7MM Rem Mag., and common traditional rounds that are readily available and at a fairly reasonable price. Only my thoughts.
The Constitution is not an instrument for the Government to restrain the people. It is an instrument for the people to restrain the Government!
Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom."
-- John F. Kennedy
