Which is more better?

I don't reload so I will be shooting factory ammo. Going off of ballistics, availability of ammo and cost of ammo which of the two choices is more better. Please splain why you think the one you chose is more besterest as well.

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

It depends on where and what you are hunting. 243, 708, 308, 30-06 are all good and have cheap ammo.

Re: Which is more better?

It'll be a lever-action brush gun mainly for teddy bears. Plus I already have a 30-06 and a 30-30 which is my deer brush gun.

The problem is that I don't know what I don't know.

Re: Which is more better?

45-70 offers a ton more factory loadings from relatively inexpensive rounds to very expensive high performance rounds. With the 444 there's just not much out there for ammo at all. Remington & Hornady make one each....Buffalo Bore makes some good stuff, but it's costly. That's about it. If it's a factory only situation I'd go for the 45-70. If you reload the 444 is fun to play with.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: Which is more better?

I have both, I prefer my 45/70 because of the greater versatility (more factory loadings available). Even though I prefer the 45/70, my .444 is a keeper.

Be the person your dog thinks you are

Re: Which is more better?

If I was hunting moose or grizzly bears, the 45-70. but for PA I'd pick the 444
