Re: Moose calibre?

The '06 will do fine with 180 gr bullets and heavier. In the past, i've owned a rem 700 in an '06 and it got the job done. I recently picked up an old rem 721 and will have it rebarrled with a custom match '06 tube.

    '06 with 180 Barnes or better yet 200 Nosler partition. The 200 grain partition load @ 2650 is a hammer, penetrates like a .338, just keep your shots at reasonable distance. Good luck!

    Sounds great friends lets keep this on track..
    How many times have you had to send a follow up shot?
    My Uncle who was from Canada gave me his old .35 Marlin 336sc when I was 12,
    he had used it for Black bear, Moose, Deer, and even Caribou. and thats all he used.
    I know its great for Deer.

    I used to have 7mmRM with 180 gr. partition. It kicked hard, compared to 30-06. But hey, you shoot once or twice in moose season.

    I'll go for 7mm because if the moose is across the large swamp, it will shoot a bit flatter than 06.

    The only time(S) I have had to deploy a follow-up shot was when my bullet didn't land where I wanted it too. Remember, lots of whitetail deer were killed with rifles greatly subpar to the 30-30 which, by todays standards, is a sissy... the .243 has way more power than the 30-30 and there are people who say its too small... With good shot placement, any of these rifles will give you the results you want.

    I shot a big cow moose at 350 yds with a 150grain balistic tip 270. She did not take one step. any gun will stop a animal . placement of the shot. confidence of your equipment

    I have always used my 300wm with 200gr Accubonds. Pure poison to animals.
