    Hi, I want to know how to shoot moose. What's the best gun to use?

  • #2
    You should try the .375 Holland & Holland Magnum. It drops 'em dead every time.

      I disagree STRONGLY with parkerhd up there...
      the .375 H&H is OVERKILL...
      moose, despite their size, are NOT hard to kill...a well placed bullet from your average 180 gr 30.06 will kill moose just as dead as a .50 cal will...its all about bullet placement, not POWER...

        You can shoot a moose with a .243 or smaller if you wanted to and knew how to. A .375 would be pretty strong for one but if you were long range hunting it would work.

          The best gun to use is the gun you shoot best, are confident in and have with you.

            .300 Ultra Mag is the best large game gun on the market. It is super flat shooting and packs a huge punch on the biggest of game. Remington makes a great one.

              30-30 with a 200 grain bullet hollow point. That should take down a moose.

                I've never shot one but in my experience a 300 or 338 win mag cures most ailments to include the 12-1500 pound moose

                      Kinfisher is correct, a well placed shot with an '06 will do it. That being said, if your charged by a bull moose in rut you may be wishing for an 375.

                        30-06 will do you just fine and if you want something bigger a 338 Win Mag is perfect. &mm Rem Mag or anything else smaller that 30cal is not on my list for that part of the country for obvious reasons!

                        BEEN DAR & DUN DAT!

                          My buddy Bill killed his Shiras last year with the only rifle he owns which is an old S & W Howa .30-'06 with a bent Redfield. Worked fine. If I ever drew a tag I'd reach for my .338 with 250 gr. Partitions.

                            .350 mag or .35 Whelen (practically the same ballistics) would be excellent. If you have shot these, you realize they aren't as overkill as they sound.

                              And I can't believe I didn't mention a big bore marlin lever gun right off the bat. Short, handy, thunderous. Moose country is the last place you need a long rifle for long range shots.
