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!
