A good buddy has a 30" tube on his custom.  He's pushing the 140's at 3100fps.  Watched him bang flop a 330" bull at 980 yards in Colorado this year.  Darn fun gun to shoot too!
I would want more than 900 ft lbs on a 330 bull. Those 330ís are double the toughness/size of a raghorn but Hey it got the job done.  High shoulder?  Like broz says its only the errant shots where the bigger guns shine.

In the real estate world they say it's all about location, location, location.  Well, I'd say, in the shooting world it's the same way but instead of location it's all about shot placement, shot placement, shot placement.

  behind the shoulder.  Conditions were good, and the shooter was more than capable.  Regardless of the number, the result was an impressively dead bull :tup:

point is inless your shooting moose past 1000 yards you will love the 6.5x284. less powder to burn and recoil is mild. the 140s are slick  .
