Rifle Size for Moose Hunting
Is a Browning 7mm WSM using 160gr bullets good for moose hunting?
Good question! The make of the moose hunting rifle is not as critical as the rifle size for moose hunting. Browning does make some fine firearms and you won't be disappointed.
The 7mm WSM in a 160 grain bullet will certainly do the job for taking moose sized game. The nice thing about the WSM caliber is that you can achieve magnum caliber velocities without using a belted cartridge.
The rifle size for moose hunting you have chosen will offer you several choices in bullet weights. But I think a 160 grain bullet is better suited for a moose hunting bullet weight, than say the 130 grain just because of bullet mass and weight retention.
I would also suggest using a premium bullet such as Nosler Partion or Barnes TTSX.
Thanks for asking,
All the best,
