Hey everyone, Does anyone own a 45-70, and if so can you please share some stories? I've done some research and it turns out it has more distance ability than I originally thought. According to what I read, it is accurate up to a little over 150 yds and can take down any North American animal. Does that mean it's ok to use it on any US animal? If I shot a white tail w/ one, would there be any meat left or just a big hole and some antlers? If hunting w/ one, should I use it on elk sized animals and up or what? All opinions and stories are appreciated.
