i would recomend the socom. simply huge bullet selection unlike the 50's which limit you to pistol bullets, while effective there just are not as wide a variety.
the socom has the same ballistics as the 45-70.
the socom uses standard nato ar15 mags. pmags have some difficulty with it. the rest use either proprietary mags or modified nato mags.
i use 30 and 20 round milsurps with mine
