Quite the first post.....

From the linked article:
No, the 7.62x39mm is UNDERKILL for moose hunting, under average conditions, from a mid-range distance, with a medium grain expanding bullet, and with correct shot placement.


I think that sums it up.

It's really inadequate for moose. Even 6.5g is light. I suggest 308.
I've seen moose taken with 5.56 77gr with a brain/cns shot but I don't recommend it. Intermediates are too small for game of this size. Please don't.

Yeah I’d not recommend anything less than a 308 for moose. 7.62x39 is pretty decent for whitetail/antelope but you still want to use a good hunting bullet, not wolf hollow point. The soft point 154 grain from silver bear is a decent round for brush and short range ie <250 yards.

I'm guessing he's kidding. Can't imagine he'd read his own linked article and still think it was a good idea.
