I've been thinking about trying out a Sharps for a long time now. It's something I think I could really get in to doing. If it's as interesting as it looks I'd like to get a club going here in Alaska. Well there is a couple already, but the shoots are a 4 hour drive from where I live, so.... Anyway, what cartridge would you guys recommend? I know the 45/70 is a favorite of everyone, but I'd like something just a little different. Also, I'd like to try this rifle on moose, caribou and bear. I was thinking of one of the long 45's or a 50. Say a 45-2 7/8 or 3 1/4 or a 50 in those lengths. Anybody got any opinions?
