Thank you coyotezapper, yes its a great moose, I took around 75-80 good moos during the years but this one was the last one, and with out question the largest one, you know you should stop when you are on the top...
I don't living in a moose country anymore...
When I say that normally someone shooting better with less muzzle blast, the 7mm Rem.Mag measure 20,3
(160 gr bullet at 2950 fps).
And the 7mm RUM with the same bullet (160 gr at 3200 fps) measure a recoil at 29,4
Both of the rifles weight is 8,5 ibs.
It's a bit strange that he 8mm Rem. Mag. shooting 200 gr bullet at 2900 fps will delivery a much more recoil of 32,9
This can be a important part for you gents that don't do not like muzzle brakes
Anyhow, most of moose I bag with a 30-06 Mannlicher, shooting a 180 gr Nosler Partition, I took out my old "friend" a couple of days ago and its rely shooting well.
Simple "pron field position" 100 meter and 3 factory loaded Norma 180 gr Vulcan spreading 15 mm c/c (0,6 MOA) (photo)
