2.5X8 is my other choice for big game!!!
As for moose, while living in AK I learned you MUST be selective when it comes to shooting moose. They like water and many of them are browsing in water which is knee to belly deep to them if so DO NOT SHOOT!!!!
The other thing I learned is to keep a small chain saw handy with vegetable oil in the oil tank!!!

You may also want to learn not all moose live near water. We hunt moose in the desert west of the great divide.

I think you all missed the point. You have to pass on some shots when the game is impossible to recover safely!
