Bullet for Moose?

Out of all of these?

I have actually taken more moose with the Sierra Game King but I find I like the Partition a little better. Economic means dictated reloading on a shoestring.

They both work fine. Once through the ribs and through the heart/lungs and bullwinkle does die.
Bullets don't kill animals all by themselves. Someone has to put them inside the animal.

.

The venerable 30-06 is big enough for moose, especially when shooting 180-gr. Partitions at 2,890 fps, which Federal loads in a High Energy round.

Winchester loads a 180-gr. AccuBond in their .30 caliber Supreme line-up, which is what I shoot in my 30-06 at 2,750 fps.

This bullet has more energy at 300 yards than a 300 Win Mag with 180-gr. Power Points.

Example:

When comparing a bullet's energy in a 30-06 versus a 300 Win Mag, if you put a premium 180-gr. Nosler AccuBond bullet in a 30-06 at 2,750 fps MV and compare it to a plain jane Winchester 180-gr. Power Point in a 300 Win Mag at 2,960 fps MV, the 30-06 AccuBond will have an amazing 104 ft. lbs more energy at 300 yards: that's right - 2,005 versus 1,901 (Source: Winchester's 2005 Ammo Catalog, p. 10 - 13).

So you see the 180-gr. AccuBond with a BC of .509 easily makes up for and passes the 210 fps velocity advantage the 180-gr. Power Point had because of its much lower BC of only .349.

In this case, the 30-06 180-gr. AccuBond outperforms a 300 Win Mag 180-gr. Power Point at 300 yards.
