I have never shot a moose but when I finally draw my tag I’ll use my 300WM.

Good luck on your hunt Robinhood21. I just got back from "your" and my dream hunt. This was my 2nd trip to AK and my 2nd successful moose kill with my .300 win mag, and my 1st float hunt.
15 years ago I killed my bull with 180 gr. partitions at a little over 200 yards. Took two shots before he dropped. This year I only got one shot off before the bull tipped over at about 120 yards. This time I used reloads with 190 gr. accubond LR bullets.
You've chosen a good and capable caliber, just stick with a good bullet and put it where it belongs and you'll get your moose.
They are big. I ended up with 654# at the processor last time and 684# from my bull this year, and that is with bone in the 4 quarters only. That's a lot of meat.

Id like to try a 450 Bushmaster on a moose out to about 175 yards.

i have shot 2 moose myself and seen 5 others shot. A 300wsm with 180 & 200gr barnes x killed 6 of them and my last a 375 ruger. all are dead so there's no debating its enough gun. But none of the 300's have got a exit hole. The shock and penetration of the 375 is amazing. So if its just for moose id go big. But a 300 will kill them. Don't be afraid to shoot more than once!

Sorry guys, I haven't checked this thread in a while obviously.

We are leaving Kansas City airport on September 2nd and will be in the Alaskan bush on the 3rd. The season starts on the 5th and runs through the 15th. OFFICIALLY 9 MONTHS AND 1 WEEK AWAY!!!

I ended up buying a 300RUM. Remington 700 AWR. Put it in a Greyboe Terrain stock and had a MicroBastard brake installed.

I haven't shot it in a while but I was able to find a good load on my initial load workup.
200gr Accubond over Retumbo (charge weight has slipped my mind at the moment) Recoil wasn't near as bad as I thought it was going to be.

Tickets and gear have been purchased. Just need to pick up a few odds and ends. A dream is truly becoming a reality smile

I have shot moose and seen them fall. A .270 is traditionally a very adequate gun.
If a larger gun has an uncomfortable kick, put a brake on it.
As said above NO person shooting their first moose is totally prepared mentally for the work ahead nor do they realize how much time taking proper care of the meat and trophy is consumed.
