I've been considering how useful a .45-70 levergun would be in a SHTF situation. There's a lot to like about the round, as it's powerful enough to do anything we could possibly need it to do within its range limitations, which are ameliorated somewhat by new developments in ammunition (e.g. Hornady Leverevolution). My question is, does anyone make low-powered loads for the .45-70 that would be appropriate for self/home defense? Are there any tried and true reloading formulas that won't blow a hole through your house and your next two neighbor's houses?
