Re: Newbie needs some help
Welcome to the board.
1st off, on a critter that big, the 190 SMK will be too unpredictable. If you hit bone or not, how fast it is going, ect...Definatly use a "hunting" bullet. SMK's work great for some kinds of hunting. It depends greatly on the game, caliber and bullet wieght. For the purpose of moose hunting with the 190 SMK, I dont recomend it. If you can find a factory load with ACCUBONDS, that is an awesome moose bullet. I have killed trophy moose with both the X bullet and accubonds. They both do very good. The only thing I dont like about the X bullet is if you hit a bone at an angle, they have a tendancy to NOT open as the hollow point gets slammed closed and the bullet turns into a bannana shape.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
