Re: Need bullet suggestions for my 1st Alaskan Moose Hunt
No. 1 Whitetail,
To be honest with you, I head shoot just about all the animals I hunt. That will be my shot of choice if I can get the proper set up. I'm confident out to about 150 yards +/- for head shot on a moose, but it has to be the perfect set up.
If not, I'm going with the boiler room shot. I've got a load for the Barnes 165 gr X bullet that is shooting in the mid .4's in my rifle. I wanted to choose a bullet that accurate and would penetrate and perform well, if that was the only shot I could get.
Now, it's just time to practice until we leave for the hunt in Sept.
Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!
