    I do own a 700 but not a Weatherby.

    I have a 700 and have shot a Weatherby but I think to actually buy a Weatherby I would probably have to live in Africa to ever get my monies worth on it. I am thinking of a BAR but have not made my mind up .
    Do something Danke

    I hear the 458 socom has similar ballistic to the 45-70

    Liberty is lost through complacency and a subservient mindset. When we accept or even welcome automobile checkpoints, random searches, mandatory identification cards, and paramilitary police in our streets, we have lost a vital part of our American heritage. America was born of protest, revolution, and mistrust of government. Subservient societies neither maintain nor deserve freedom for long.

    Quite the thump too.

    The 300-grain (19 g) round offers a supersonic muzzle velocity of 1,900 ft/s (580 m/s) and 2,405 ft⋅lbf (3,261 J),[1] similar to a light .45-70 but with a much smaller case.
    I'll bet that will crack a chest plate.

    or stop a charging boar.

    I still have not made up my mind but I have bought some fun stuff recently anyway, a Spanish side by side double 12 Ga , a fold up single shot 12 Ga , a Browning 28 Ga and an H& R .223 Rem. Now I just need @Danke to loan me some FRN's for ammo and I will not have to make any more arrows this summer .

    If you want a good tried and proven all around big/medium game rifle, get a Remington 700 in a 30-06. Trust me on this, I know and there are many many reasons why proven throughout the history of this weapon and round.

    I have one . They have a used 700 at the Bait & Tackle too I think in .243 , I considered it too but it is just too high I think and prices there are normally good , they also have a 22 250 , too high too . I am thinking of adding another ,maybe an AR type platform in .300 or .308 etc, that Socom Pete posted looks interesting . I am leaning towards adding a BAR in 30 06 so I can get some extra mags and maybe another 45 - 70 sometime . Other than maybe a nice double rifle , another .17 or a .22 Mag then I guess I am done at that . The amount of money I end up tied up in ammo on all these is staggering once you figure in a few hundred rounds per weapon . I have probably bought about ten just since I retired here 3 years ago or so . Only thing I have shot this week though is my recurve . Pete would love this new Browing pump shotgun , it ejects out the bottom.

    Good deal, the 700 is hard to beat taking most everything larger. The AR in .308 would be pretty cool. I have owned a couple AR platforms but never really liked them. like the AK platform better. But I really like my old H&R 45-70, fun rifle. I want to try reloading some spent casings with a sabot and .30 caliber boattail to see how they do, they should shoot a lot flatter and be pretty quick with all that powder behind it. I just got a recurve, still getting used to it, been using compounds.

    Ithaca was lefty friendly too.. But I like that left handed models are coming out by several.

    They’re making AR platforms in .45-70 or .300 Win Mag too.

    They run about $3,500-$6,000.

    They have .270 Win, 6.5 Creedmore AR platforms as well for a little less.

    The 700 is a great firearm with a variety of calibers. Pretty sure they are even offering a .300 Remington Ultra Magnum as well as .338 Lapua for 1,000 yard plus shots.
