The 7mm Remington Magnum cartridge is more than capable of taking out moose and big bears at fairly long distances when the right bullet weight and loading is correctly chosen for such animals. A heavier, very high ballistic coeffecient bullet is in order here to stretch out range with plenty of down range energy left to get the job done. One of the best loadings I have seen for this purpose is the new Hornady 162 Grain SST Superformance 7mm Rem. Mag. loading as it delivers more than a ton of bullet energy at 400 yards down-range. That is more than enough bullet energy for moose and bears at 400 yards.
