Don't do it!

Moose are larger than you think, and bear are tougher than you think. I can't think of any guide that would let a client go after either with buckshot.

Some guides in AK use slug guns for protection, also a big one they use is a Marlin 45-70 Guide gun. I had a cousin who was a guide when he lived in AK. He had a minimum caliber a cllente could use. He told me he carried a 458. cal Winchester . reason being if a client had a bad shot on a brown bear he could drop it before it made it to the bush. He said if that happened, Things get real exiting.

I'm not a Hunter's safety instructor but I have a hunter and would not dream of hunting moose or bear with buckshot. A quality slug yes. Buckshot not a chance.

Yes absolutely a SLUG and with a 12 or 10 Gauge only.

I shot an Elk two years ago with a 12 gauge slug at 50 yards, killed it but the slug only penetrated about 7"

Was it a foster type slug or a sabot?

Thanks, I would have expected greater penetration.
