Looking to get my first lever action. I will mostly be using it for pigs and deer but would also like to have a nice backpacking rifle for larger game as well. Would a 45-70 be versitial enough to take deer and pigs without blowing half the animal apart? I will be using the rifle for pigs and deer 99% of the time. Is it worth getting a much larger caliber for the very few times I MAY go for elk or moose down the line? With the new lever evolution ammo I thinking the 30-30 is very versitial as well. Any suggestions and advice is appreciated.
