JMHO, but you'll be fine with the 300 RUM.

Should be no problem with a 300 RUM and a 200gr Nosler partition. Still need to place your bullet well no matter what you shoot. I hunt Alaska's interior Grizzlies and I use 180gr Nosler partitions in my 30-06.

Re: Wow, no one been to Alaska

I've been in Alaska since '66 and I haven't missed a moose hunt since '75. My kids have grown up eating moose and caribou. Last year our youngest daughter shot her first moose.

While it is true that Alaska is a great place to hunt, that doesn't mean that there are animals everywhere. Knowing where to go, having the ability to get there and the skill level to hunt the species you're going after are necessary to be consistently sucessful.

Re: Wow, no one been to Alaska

I've lived in Alaska for over 40 years. As for what gun to use, my go to gun for everyday use is an H&R single shot in 30-06. I've killed Caribou, Moose, Black Bear, and Grizzly, with it. One shot kills on everything I have shot with it except wolves. Have had to make a follow-up shot a few times on them, since they were running when I shot and did not make the best hits.

Shot a Grizzly last year with my .338/378 Weatherby. First shot was through both lungs, but did not know that from 620 yards away. Second shot hit the spine as Grizzly ran away, broke the spine. Again did not know that at the time due to distance. Grizzly rolled behind a bush. All I could see was the a bear standing on it's front legs looking around. so I put a third shot in the neck, killing it instantly.
