    What cartridge you shooting, I used Hornady 225 Soft Points in my 338 Win Mag and the best moose kill on the biggest Winkle was a 17ish year old with a 30-06 shooting Remington 180 grain Core-Lokt®.

    ken.mcloud said it best!

    “So, I think that the superior killing power of larger rounds is largely in our heads.(likely testosterone induced) A flat-shooting round that you can accurately place will produce as many if not more "bang-flop" kills as a heavy caliber round.”

      My preference is for Barnes triple X or Nosler Partitions in the caliber you choose. Go with a fairly heavy bullet for your caliber. For example 180 gr in 30 caliber or 250 gr in 35 caliber.
      Swift makes very good bullets also. While these are expensive bullets. Compared to the cost of everything else it's not much money for a bullet that gives you more confidence.
