If you have a high enough energy out of your setup for larger big game (KE rating) then I would say you're good to go - hunt approved.
"Here is a list of what seems to be the general consensus. Remember, nothing is better than a well placed shot.

Small Sized Game - 25 ft-lbs

Medium Sized Game (Deer, antelope, etc.) - 25-40 ft-lbs

Large Sized Game (Elk, Moose, Black Bear) - 50-65 ft-lbs

Dangerous/Tough Game (Cape Buffalo, Grizzly, etc.) - 65 ft-lbs and above"
