I am just trying to find something to fill my medium/big bore hole that I have. I currently have a .223, 2-.30-06's, an 8mm Mauser, and thats if for centerfire. I plan to get a 45-70, and want something in between the 06 and 45-70. The 45-70 will probably come first, but I want something in mind if I ever do get a medium bore also, although my hunting will probably consist of animals that will easily be taken by the .30-06, it would be fun to have another gun in the closet
. I would like to hunt grizzlies or browns, but the cost is just unreal, so it would probably be more practical to actually borrow a larger bore for the once in a lifetime hunt. I figure the 06 will handle all of my elk, moose, and caribou hunting I will ever get to do. The 45-70 would be a special purpose gun for anything that gets hunted in really thick cover, or from a stand, etc. So in all actuality, I probably will never NEED a medium bore, but it would be fun to have, lol.
Thanks for the info guys!!
