Re: Rifle for Moose
My boys and I have taken over 20 moose with an old Rem 7 mag, none walked off. One was at 700 yards. Last year we got 3 bulls with an AR-10 338 fed; none walked off. More have been shot with 30-30s than any other gun. I had a Indian Woman neighbor that killed over 30 moose bothering her horses over the years, with an old 243. Moose have a pie plate kill zone, they go down easy. I currently use a 30-378 for longer shots and I think I would use the 300 win mag you now have. We got one so far this season, small bull with 30-378, using 165 GMax hornadys about 200 yards; didn't go anywheres.
I've actually been wanting to kill one with my 6.8 stag, just haven't got the chance yet but I'm sure the 6.8 would kill a moose.
