Looking for personal experiences on big game with the 500 mag. So far, two moose have given in to 420 and 440 hardcast from my p.c. Mainly interested to hear what bullet was used, distance, velocities, and exactly how it performed on game. 400 kodiak, 400 sierra, and 350 hornady are my main focus. Of my experiences with the hard cast, one 440 that mushroomed perfect with 100% weight retention and two other pass throughs on the first moose. The second animal had a pass through and one shattered bullet. With five bullets in two animals, there isn't enough consistency to sell me, so i'm switching to jacketed bullets.
