You also mention a Sendero in one of your posts. For Moose in 26" Sendero I would go with the 300 Rum. You cant go wrong with that. Stick a 200 NAB in it at 3150 + FPS and you have a DEAD Moose.

Both the 300 Rum and the STW could use a little longer barrel to take advantage of the heavies and slow powder. In a 26" Sendero bore to barrel length and twist I think the 300 Rum would be the better choice.
