^ It is not a ft lb deal - it's a penetration/destruction deal. I'll take 1,500 ft lbs with a hard cast LBT WLN .44/.45 over a 3,000 ft lb expanding bullet. One will shoot stem to stern and the other, not so much.
BTW, that may be one of the reasons that statistically, you are better off with a handgun as opposed to a rifle in a bear attack, - penetration and easier to use in close quarters.
