One thing is it depends one where you hunt. I use a 45-70 for pigs but I am also in lead-free country. If you are in lead-free territory for hunting and don't reload then getting factory 45-70 lead free ammo is not cheap and almost impossible to find. 30-06 there are a few companies now making factory lead free.

I do love my 45-70 but lead free does make it complicated. So if you are planning to hunt in lead free zone then it may be better to dump the 45-70 and get the 29.
