Oh but wait sir, don't you know that Bergers don't work at short range! And certainly not on big, tough, dangerous game animals!
Sorry, couldn't resist. Great animals and awesome bullet performance!

Tumble Weed- I couldn't agree with you more. I hear people say that all the time about Berger. I hear all the time, your crazy to go Grizzly bear hunting with Bergers. All I can say is that 2 shots from a 300 win mag took down a 900lb Grizzly quick. The second shot and he was dead as he flew backwards down the Mountain.

Thanks for the post!

Good question, A bull moose has as much as 12-13 gallons of blood in his circulatory system. That takes some time to for an animal that large to bleed out. I have seen several large bull moose take 3-4 rounds from larger calibers than a 300 win mag. They are flat out tough animals, they are so huge and can suck up rounds. The 5th round was for good measure. He was just a fighter I guess, all the shots where in the boiler maker.

Not to mention if you let a bull like that walk off wounded and you aren't able to track/find him - that is the stuff of nightmares!
