I hunt exclusively with 45-70, and have for awhile. I have examples of both Henry and Marlin's and I've found things to love about all of them. Henry finish is alittle better, but no loading gate. The rifle I grab first 99% of the time is a newish (not JM) Marlin, it just handles and shoots so good, it is mostly what I bring with me. As far as what the 45-70 round can do, there is no reason for argument. There is a century of history of what can be done with a 45-70 to draw upon. Either platform you pick will make you happy I predict. Also, if you handload, 45-70 offers a great deal of entertainment to handloaders. I load rounds from all extremes for it, and have a great deal of fun doing it.
I think, therefore I am... Libertarian
