I'm headed up for the first time to Newfoundland after moose.


I need help to decide on a gun bullet combo, I do have a 300 win mag with a break action I loaded up 180gr Nosler partitions.

It's not a great shooter no matter what I run though it!

I also have a 7mm rem mag that shoots well.

Is a 150 Barnes xxx good enough for moose I'm steering away from the partitions, or should I go to a heavier bullet?

I already have 150 in the xxx please help me with your thoughts.

Thx

bullet load

Well I've looked in my Lyman 45th edition it shows a factory load at 180 jacketed bullet with 4350 IMR 72.5 grains then it's showing 72.0 grains of 4350 powder as an Accuracy load using a magnum primer.

I would use a Speer 180 grain pointed soft point boat tail.

I think you would find that accurate and if not then go look at a Remington 338 Cal in a Remington 700 these gun's are sniper accurate in a Speer 225 grain PSP boat tail using 4350 67 grains/ mag primers deadly accurate.

We went to newfoundland this Sept and both shot moose. I used 150 grain Remmington core locks and they performed perfectly. Just put them where they belong and they will do the job. My Sako shoots these really well and that's why I used them. Enjoy your hunt and good luck!!
