Just a little light in most peoples mindset, I'd use it for moose though, my theory is get close and place your shot well. I had a buddy that shot a 7x57 exclusively and I thought it was hell of a gun everything he shot with it including 2 moose died well. If you don't plan on buying it let me know what kinda deal you could get on it.
