We've got a cabin in a fairly remote part of NM, on a few acres and wildlife is abundant. For two-legged predators, coyotes, and even black bear in an emergency, which would you rather have, a 24" .45 Colt 1894 loaded with 300-325 grain loads or a 20" .30-30 336ss loaded with 170s or LE 160s? Both wear stock irons, but part of this is me trying to decide which one I want to upgrade sights on. I've killed pigs with the .30-30 and one deer with the .45. Thanks for the replies.
