(given rifle sights) then you aint much of a hunter,and you probably need a LOT more "reach" than the pathetic 150m of a 45-70, too.

OTOH,IME I'll agree on your distance vs skill statement.BUT,I don't live where the mule deer & the antelope play...

If you can get within X yards with Y weapon, then you can do it with Z weapon, too. Skill as a hunter has zero to do with the weapon you use.

And the .45-70 has well over 150 yards of range. At least 200 yards, with factory sights, maybe 225. Moire with a scope or proper vernier sights.
