CorBon's .30 AK load makes the sks every BIT as powerful as the 30-30 ever was. The sks lets you get repeat hits TWICE as fast as the lever action ever did. So the sks can do anything that the 45-70 ever could, by virtue of hitting with just as much energy, penetrating just as deep or deeper, being about 10x as cheap to practice with, and twice as fast to hit with. So why waste $500 on a 45-70, and have HALF the range of the $150 sks? :)

The 45-70 is quite capable of killing any animal in North America as well as most in Africa. The SKS is not. Thats why.

Anyone else notice, hestarted talking about the .30-30, comparing it to the SKS (the 7.62x39mm is real close, but not quite as powerful as the .30-30, so his assretion is, again, incorrect), and then uses his incorrect conslusion to state that the 7.62x39mm is more powerful than the .45-70?

Now, really, the .45-70 has killed everything that walks, in its least powerful, blackpowder, loading. Modern loads are much more powerful. The 7.62x39mm, .30-30., .223, even .308 can't tough the .45-70 for delivered hitting power (FPE isn't everything, caliber and momentum also factor in, HEAVILY) or penetration. The .45-70 can penetrate a Cape Buffalo end to end. Vince Lupo proved this on his Safari (see the Garrett web site). .45-70 bullet entering the front shoulder and exiting after penetrating throught he corss-side hip. They never found the bullet. None of CowardKid's vunderbullets will even come close. His fantasy loads wouldn't even make it through the front shoulder.

Yeah sure it can penetrate like a 500 froma 45/70. And since he has never hunted that I can recall from his blatherings, he would know this from experience how?
