Let me just say....I have hunted Canadian Moose.
I have taken a 1800 pound ,charging (in rut) bull Moose.

I nearly crapped my pants to see him still coming after 2 shots of 30-06 to the chest at 30 yds, then drop 10 ft from me (hiding behind a tree).;)

Would I rely on a .357 to stop a moose ,of any size, except maybe a baby calf, NOT ME.:)

.357 vs moose

Thanks Phideaux

For that. I'm not looking for an encounter with a moose, I just carry in case one threatens me. I did come across a big bull when hunting grouse and he just stepped out of the woods a casually looked me over a sauntered off.

All I had with me at the time was a 12ga shotgun with an ounce of bird shot.
