I know a lot of 6.5X55 are used to take moose in other countries. I bought a .338-06 for use on the beasties now all I have to do is go hunt one. I should be able to draw for one here in Colorado in the next couple of years as I will finaly have enough points for the draw after this one. As far as being tougher than elk, I think more people are able to hunt elk and so a higher percentage of people have had problems from bad shot placement. Neither animal is bullet proof and if you have proper placement of your shot they will not go far.
