Best Rifle Combo for Moose

by Big Bert
(Canada)

In 2012 I shot my 30th moose in 50 years and I have used most 30-30, 30-06, 38-55, 44, 12guage slug and a 300 Weatherby.


My last one with a 300 WSM.

I used federal bonded tip ammo and new Vanguard rifle at 241 yards it was a one shot dead drop shot, at the range the target had 3 shots at 200yds in 3/4in.

I rate this as the best rifle combo for recoil, handling and low cost. I now use only one gun for all game, just vary the ammo.

The old 38-55

Hey Big Bert!

My dad gave me his old 1896 octagon barrelled 94 in 38-55.
Is the winchester factory ammo ok for moose?
It is so slow I could near ride the bullet!
