".Now, if you're hunting moose you probably need a caliber with recoil above 20 lbs. "
Yeah.........everyone I talk with says that they feel that the 45/70 is best for a Moose. Then again, I've seen hunting videos where a strong Bull Moose just shook his head, after being hit in the "kill zone" and walked away, (a 45/70 shot). It took another shot to bring him down.
