Also, I don't know if I agree with Gary above, because we certainly aren't using a varmint rifle to kill moose, and I have heard many a story about some old, beat up 30-06 taking one down, certainly not a target rifle.
LOL, you can call your rifle a "George." It doesn't care what you call it or how you classify it. You can certainly take a moose with a varmint rifle. I have a .45-70 varmint rifle and use it for a varmint called Sus scrofa. Folks have used the 1895 .45-70 for moose for well over 100 years.

The military and police have sniper rifles.
Just curious, when the police snipers have to shoot animals, do the sniper rifles they use become hunting rifles?
