I have a couple 45-70 but prefer to shoot handloads vs factory & the 45-70 is a great game getter w/ old fashioned lead bullets.
"Given adequate penetration, a larger diameter bullet will have an edge in wounding effectiveness. It will damage a blood vessel the smaller projectile barely misses. The larger permanent cavity may lead to faster blood loss. Although such an edge clearly exists, its significance cannot be quantified".
