Default Hopefully this is not your first Deer rifle

I have only fired a 45-70 once. It was a Marlin guide gun with a short barrel. But it kicked like a mule and even though it could stop anything I wouldn't recommend it for most common use Deer Hunting. I think almost all the other choices are a better option for Deer. I personally would recommend any of the following over it
30-30
243 Win
6mm Rem
260
7mm-08
308
270
280
30-06
I hope you get the point, lots of better choices.

Karl
