    Matt,

    Your best bet would be a post in the European Big game hunting forum on 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!

    the moose season starts in sept and not oct, we are going out to my lease on the 10th for 10 days hunting bear and moose, by the time you get there ,there could be nowt left to shoot.

    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

    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
