After i dropped my moose this year with my 300 win it needed a kill shot after we walked upon it. I used my 45-70 with 345 grain leverlution that my Buddy was borrowing for the day. Shot was at 10 feet to the neck and the round produced a large hole and lots of blood. The moose died in the next minute. Now the alarming thing is that that round was recovered and did not seem to hit any bone. Seperated from the brass and mushroomed well although it seems as a piece of the lead seperated from the main body of the round but not much penetration for a shot that close. I dont see his ammo as a good choice for much game up here in alaska besides deer. Any other opinions out there or hunting experiance with this ammo?
