Me and 2 friends from work are going to the Koyukuk in Sept. to chase the mighty moose. One of them has never shot a moose before. He said he will be bringing his only big rifle, a Mod. 70 Win. in caliber .270 WCF. He wanted to know if it was big enough or if he needed a bigger gun. I imediately thought of all the old timers I met back in the 60's who used the .270 with 150 grain Nosler Partitions. It was well thought of. Also, the other guy going with us mostly uses a Mod. 70 Featherweight in .270 Winchester, with 150 grain Partitions. I told him we will find a moose and the shot behind the shoulder will be under 200 yards and the moose will walk a little ways and die. I am as guilty as the next guy when it comes to bigger being better. Still, it is up to the guy holding the rifle, no matter what your shooting. The .270, when did it stop being enough gun?
