And the flip side to Simplify ! is that in the cyclical ammo shortages , the most popular cals are the first to disappear .

Absolutely concur with this. If I only have a limited number of days to prep for deer season, I'm not going to spend it all at the range. Most of my time I'm going to spend just walking in the woods, scouting. Then I'll spend some time prepping my gear, some time prepping my stand, and some time at the range.
And I don't spend all year prepping for deer season, because after deer comes ducks, after ducks comes turkeys, and totally different ballgames for all of them.

Dont forget to factor in diminishing or poor light, rain or snow- moving game and the inability to accurately judge distance on fleeting/alert game.
Shooting without a rest or the inability to judge distance being the most common error trap for inexperienced persons.
Every body thinks 150 yards is 400 when they tell the tale especially near dark.
Most people couldn't hit a bull in the ass with a handful of rice when you get right down to it.

.45-70 ( and big bore BPCtg generally ) can shoot through a Buffalo @ 1,000 yds
IF you can accurately judge range , intimately know your trajectory , and quickly dial it into your vernier tang sight .

But modern sensibilities expect a rifle to be able to hit " deer sized critter " out to 90 something percentile hunting distances without adjusting sights , and only minor hold over/ under . Dozens " modern hunting ctgs " can do this .
