    Very nice Goshawk I am already jealous them flat tops do very well for expansion I need to get out and test mine to see how they do.

    looks like there isn't much difference in mushroom diameter and weight retention between your two alloys.

    I have only killed one moose in my life and that was with a bow and arrow. It was the Alaskan variety up in Fairbanks. I'm betting your lead bullet is at least as good at killing a moose as my arrow was. You put it through the lungs and I'm sure you will be fine.
