Well it's really up to your rifle what it likes the best and what it shoots the best.. BUT, I would start with 250 Nosler and maybe some lighter Nosler also. Try some Barnes X too and maybe Remington Swift A Frame.. But shoot several and see what the rifle prefers..

338 is one of my favorite cartridges. While it's perfect for moose I'm not so sure I'd shoot a deer with one, would either poke a little hole and keep going or if shot is far enough away it would just tear the heck outa it.. Dead is dead I guess...

Might as well be shooting a 155 Howitzer. Any of the named bullets will kill a deer or moose. A friend of mine that lived in several states from Michigan to Idaho said that he killed a number of elk and moose with a .243.
