    I’ve been hunting with my family for a while, currently i use a .303 enfield that was handed down by my granddad which i intend on holding onto but i’m looking for something with a little more bells and whistles and doesn’t double as a bench press bar. I’m not looking for a cannon but something that will take down a moose without marksmen level shot placement. 192.168.100.1 192.168.1.1 Any reply is appreciated

      Shot placement is STILL the determining factor for you cleanly take an animal (which you owe it to the animal to do your best) vs. outside the critical area and wind up only wound the animal who may be lost and suffer a horrible death. There are tons of cartridges suitable to take a moose. I suggest you read some articles on hunting Moose or get a experienced hunter as a mentor. Good Luck

        I’ve never hunted moose but I’m guessing the vitals are at least 12 inches. I don’t know what marksmen level accuracy is. But from what little I know about moose hunting it seems a pretty short range affair. I’m guess 100 yards or less.

        if hitting a 12”x12” target something that cant be achieved.

        It doesn’t matter if you have .30-378 weatherby if you can’t hit anything it’s a waste of time and ammo.

        what I’m getting at is practice practice practice.

        you owe it to the moose to be able to harvest quickly.
