But the .30-06 offers an even bigger advantage with 180gn bullets to be used on big game.

I can assure you that the Mossberg action is plenty strong enough to handle the 33 Nosler.

You don't say if you are shooting factory ammo or a handload?

The bullet drops about a foot at 200 yds, where retained energy has plummeted to about 600 ft/lbs.

You might think about a .223 Rem. as Winchester loads a 64gn bullet and OSA loads a 63gn bullet.

I recommend sighting-in 3 inches high at 100 yds for a 250yd. zero and drop of 4 inches at 300.

Parallax can be detected by placing crosswires on the centre of a target at say100 yards, and while looking through the scope, moving your head from side to side.

Of the many forces that affect accuracy, barrel vibration is probably foremost.

Give those varmints hell!

It was replaced by the Eklund-Ljungmann rifle in 6.5x55mm.

I've also used the 130gn Speer spitzer in my 7mm-08 with excellent results at ranges from 50 to 250 metres.

It appears that the .270 WSM has about a 150 fps velocity advantage over the venerable .270 Winchester.

I consider either one an excellent choice for elk and moose.
