Thanks for the info Dog Down. Makes me wonder what great stuff I have missed on the Internet due to limited imagination on searches!

Found this site by luck only…was looking for replacement screws for a rail…stripped a couple trying to remove it. Re-building my 300wsm for a Fly in Moose hunt this fall in Northern Ontario.
New stock (will be bedding it) new scope, new load development for 190gr Accubond LR (love this bullet!!!)….all the goodies. Might be the one and only time I get to do a trip like this so making the rifle specifically for the trip.

Had a buddy do a fly in moose hunt 2 yrs ago, he used a 338 mag with Barnes ttsx and I think Browning A-Bolt (not sure). I saw the pictures of the beast and “wow”. He was in Alaska but you should see similar. He and his non hunting wife both claimed that early bull moose is the best meat they ever had. He bought a deep freeze at SAMs club or similar in AL, filled it with moose and shipped it home to ND on a truck going that way.
I say “early” bull since when they get deep in rut the meat quality suffers. His hunt is a good story and I don't think I can do it justice but I'll try:
He hooked up with a gold miner in Alaska somehow and got an invite to hunt. Long story short he made it up there and helped out with some mechanics and bunked with the miners. They knew a big moose was around but the guys were totally focused on the job. These guys basically dragged a full tanker semi of fuel with dozers to mining site (miles) that winter over 30 days or so at about 1 mile per day. Budy was on a ridge and saw moose moving to airstrip, he dropped his pack and he set out running. He got to berm near strip after about 1/2 mile or so and was near puking his guts when bull stepped onto runway. WHAM first shot seemed good given hyperventilating, and WHAM 2nd shot more of same. Bull leaned over and layed down. Mining guys drove loader over and when picked up, that sucker was easily twice as tall as Hunter. Massive bull and big deep freeze full of meat shipped home! Both shots were kills one through part of heart.
Btw AL is terror on fly in and shoot hunters. You must wait a day or so after arrival before shooting. They are serious, and have power to arrest for violation and waste. If a hunter violates he will go to jail!
