I was looking for some insight from someone who has actually taken a moose with a muzzleloader. I would like to know what kind of rifle you were shooting, powder type and load, bullet type and weight, distance of shot, where hit, how far did it go, etc. I drew a Colorado muzzleloader bull moose tag this year and I have a 50 cal T/C Hawken. We cannot use sabots, pelletized powder, or scopes here in CO, but I plan to use about 100 gr FFG Triple Seven with 370 gr T/C Maxi's and am wondering how that compares or any other advice from to someone who has already taken a moose. Thanks in advance
Actually I found out about a guy in Utah who makes custom mzldr bullets, called No Excuses. I was using his 460 gr slugs with 100 gr triple 7. I recovered 2 slugs from my moose and the one from the elk never passsed through, but I could not find the slug. They mushroomed well, but I thought for sure that heavy of a slug would have passed through (which is what I was hoping for). The end result was good, but my expectations of those slugs were not what I had hoped for.
