Matt,

Your best bet would be a post in the European Big game hunting forum on www.accuratereloading.com (http://www.accuratereloading.com) - there are a fair few Norwegian hunters on there and loads of good sporting agents.

Gadget and I are off to Sweden on October 14th to hunt with some Swedish mates for the opening weekend of the moose season, plus some boar hunting too. I've got the .300WM fettled with 220gn partitions and I'm good to go - can't wait!

Adam.

Only in the north of Sweden do's the moose season start the 1st Monday in Sept. For most of Swedeen the season starts on the 16th Oct so there will still be moose to shoot in Oct.
I had to say no to 10 days moose hunting in Norland, free if i took the Kopov to hunt the moose and a days boar hunting in southern Sweden with the Kopov as i have booked other thing. But plenty more where that came from:D

Matt I always used a 6.5x55 sw with homeloaded Norma Oryx 156 gr on the old moose, I had no problems with that,I'm off to Sweden on the 17 oct for a couple of days too, Where are you going?Have you been before? Have a good one,,,,Hem - Jagareforbundet

The boar are incidental - it's the moose I'm loading for. Have you seen the size of those buggers! Anyway, I'm increasingly keen on big premium bullets going slow rather than small bullets going like hell; less meat damage and plenty of 'knock down' power. I'd be just as confident using 156gn bullets in my .270, it's just that my .300WM is my new toy, so it's getting an outing.

thats a good combo for moose! 220 grain will give you less meat damage than 180gr with a .300wm and a bigger punch!
good luck!
my father is flying over here for the moose rut in end of sept! unfortunately we only have yearling bull tags!
will be using 30.06 with 180gr fed power shok and my father with 7.o8 with 140gr NP,s

Hey Adam use the big bullets goin fast as hell, more meat you blow away less you have to drag :D

Those things are bleedin massive, seen em standing at the edges of the forests when I drove up to Stockholm, bit like a fat brown thing with giraffe legs, can't wait for the pics of you guys dragging it over the tundra :rofl:

Have a good un mate, my best to Gadget
