I've been following this thread and I keep wondering, if you are planning to download the .458 Magnum down to .45-70 power levels, why don't you just buy a .45-70?

Flexibility, I guess. Knowing you have that extra little edge you can reach for when the performance you want is bumping .45-70 stops. In particular, fans of very long and heavy (or non-lead-cored, or both) bullets might appreciate having a little more length and room in their cases even if they're perfectly happy with what the .45-70 can do on paper.
