Its been 5 minutes since I picked up my Lott , love older guns and still looking for a large bore double . Hunt Canadian big game except the big bears,missed my chance with all the new bear closures happening in Canada. Carry my big bores when i go out hunting for moose otherwise it the 45-70 for deer and bear.

Welcome, check out the big bore addiction group. Although, it will make the addiction worse ;)

double-double, welcome to the AH forum! Very sad about the grizzly closures. A lot of us missed the excellent opportunities.

Welcome to AH! Maybe you can find a .465 H and H double? You’d probably be the first in Canada, or maybe anywhere, to own one. Enjoy the ride here on AH!

Welcome from a fellow Canuck, by your name I can conclude your a fan of Timmy’s. For a double rifle in Canada there are a few places you can find them.

double double,
At .458 inch bore, your 45-70 is a big bore, constrained only by the choice of bullets and powder.
I have a 1886 45-70, 1886 45-90, a 45-70 double. The two 1886 rifles have taken big game in Africa including Cape buffalo, leopard, ele, etc. You might like a .45-70 DR like this Beretta Of mine:
