Hunted moose and deer for over 40 yrs. I would use a 3x9 scope and of course a 7mm Weatherby mag. Hard to beat.

If the game is moose I would use my mark v ultra lightweight in .338-06 A Square with the factory load 210 grain Nosler partition. I have a Leupold VX III 1.75-6 x 32 that sits atop the rifle.

Just before Weatherby came out with this rifle I was having one built for me on a Mauser action. The gunsmith moved out of state and I bought the Weatherby instead. I carried it on a moose hunt in Canada and it was a joy to carry. Didn't take a moose but a good trip nonetheless.
I did shoot a nice bear with it in northern Michigan and the bear only travelled about 20 yards.
I probably wouldn't use it on deer only because I have other calibers I prefer to use.

Isn't it interesting how many of us choose such a wide variety of different rifles, scopes and bullets?

If you are arguing with an idiot and someone passes by, they don't know who's the idiot.

Who should care if it is a 2.5 yr old thread? I don't.Fun to see what everyone thinks anytime.

Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.
