    Default which bullet tip for moose?

    ADVERTISEMENT
    I shoot a 30-06, 180 grain bullets. In the past I've always used Federal premium trophy bonded tips for deer hunting. This will be my first moose hunt and I'm wondering if that tip will work well for moose? I'm willing to change bullets but not weights.

    Your ammunition will do the job nicely. You are using a lot of bullet for deer. We shoot 165 Noslers for both deer and moose. Good luck on your hunt !

    Trophy Bonded is what I use for black bear, deer and moose. Some say it is the perfect bullet.
    Bonded front and solid rear for lots on penetration. Keep the ammo you are using it will do the job nicely.

    Use them in my .35 Whelen. Should be ideal out of your 06 for moose.

    X2, my bullet of choice for big game. Some folks may not realize, but there are 2 versions of the partition - the spitzer point which is more common and commercially loaded (Federal), and the protected point. I handload using the protected point as the tip is not subject to deforming when cycling the action.
