Re: Moose Hunting

Deer Grunt, Where is your Moose Hunt? The first time I saw a Grizzly in Alaska, .300 Win Mag w/ Nosler 180 partitions looked like pea-shooter. I had just unloaded a full 4 shots into a 54" bull's chest at 70 yds and he just walked off to die about a hundred yds. in a dense thicket. Go for bullet weight, and round nose bullets, if shooting will be at close range. Have a look a Hawk Bullets:

Good Hunting

Re: Moose Hunting

This is the place I will be hunting moose in the first week of Oct. I have deer hunted the last two years here in New York with the owner. Nice man and seems to be knowledgeable. I think my 308 Win will do the job if I do my part. Hornady Interbonds through both lungs should do the trick. Thank you all for the helpfull information.

Re: Moose Hunting

You'll do just fine with your .308 and Interbonds, my dad used one for 20 years successfully. Last year I was using 180gr Accubonds and the moose were dropping like I was using an RPG, granted I was using a 300 Weatherby running them about 3100fps. Although I used to use a .264 Win Mag and it kills them pretty good too.

Don't believe any B.S. about needing a bigger caliber!
Life is short... Lets go kill something

Re: Moose Hunting

(New guy wanders in..)
I grew up in "Bush" Alaska, and watched my Dad and his buddies put moose on the table year after year with their "Good ol' Ought-6's". I expect there's not a moose born yet that could tell the difference between a .308 and a .3O-06. If you start wishing you'd brought a Weatherby- you're too damn far away! Have to agree about the "Hump shot"- I was 13 or 14 and it was my first moose- I had a Model 94 30-30 (my dad was next to me with his 'O6 ready) and it was about a hundred yard shot. Truth be told, I was aiming for heart and lungs, but being young and nervous I pulled it. And dropped him like a rock. Cut the spinal cord right in half- he never took a step. I would have never tried for that shot with iron sights, but was grateful for such a clean kill.
Enjoy your hunt, and your moose- I hardly tasted beef the whole time I was growing up.

Re: Moose Hunting

The 308 win is worthy with good 180gr bullets like the Nosler Partition.

Keep your shots under 250 yards

I prefer a 300 win Mag with the same bullet for moose hunting.

Re: Moose Hunting

Your 308 is more then enough, I like the 180ttsx for moose and elk.
