Re: Moose calibre?
the good old '06 (308 Win also) is plenty for moose inside 200 yards, move up to the 300 WSM and 300 WinMag to extend the range a bit, the 300 WBY and 300 Rum are about perfect for moose with 180 gr, or even better 200 gr bullets ... the 30 cals seem to always drop the big bulls where they stand, In my experience the 7mms always involve numerous follow up shots and/or sometimes lengthy tracking and searching ordeals... nothing I hate more than having to pull moose out of a bog 1/2 mile further than where it was shot, I agree the 8mm Rem Mag is a damn fine moose cartridge, I have seen my brother dump plenty of big bulls and several brown bear with the Swift A Frame bullets... there is indeed something magical with the 8mm and moose.. the 7mm's ... not so much !
How is it y'all still don't know the difference between CALIBER and CARTRIDGE ??
