Goin to Newfoundland on moose/caribou hunt. First i don’t figure on shots being over 3-350yds. What’s your thoughts on which gun to take ? My choices are 7mm-08 shooting 136grn sledge hammer or 30-06 shooting 180 Barnes TTSX. I am starting on load for 06 with 166 grn sledge hammer. Both guns shoot under 1in at 100yds, 7mm-08 is little lighter n less recoil (ruger american) n has cheap scope but it will shoot. 06 is nicer gun with better scope.ok I’m rambling,curious to you guys thinking.

Perhaps I'm partial since I shoot an '06 too, but that's what I would take for sure. No question in my personal opinion.

Awesome, if you're shooting monos, you could try dropping some weight from it. Try the in the 150-170 range. That will help with the recoil, as well as you just don't need the extra weight because they retain almost all of it.

Yeah I’m starting to work a load up with 166 gen sledge hammer. If that works out I may use that instead of 180 barnes
