got this great deal on a ruger mkII stainless/synthetic in 350 rem mag. bought a burris 1.75 x 5, had stan jackson mount it and do trigger job. i also came across ammo both in 200 gr and 250 gr (both orig remington loadings).
but i still have my 45-70 (stainless marlin guide gun, WWG big loop lever, ashley front/rear sights w/ wings on rear sight)
don't these guns overlap in the performance arena? i know generally the marlin is big bullet and effective range to 150 yds or so, the 350 rem mag out to 250yds or so.
other than the pleasure of owning both, does the 45-70 fill a niche the 350 rem mag doesn't?
