Is a 300 Winchester magnum powerful enough to hunt any animal in North America?

The largest animals I can think of in North America are a moose and a grizzly bear.  When a 300 Winchester be powerful enough or do you need bigger?  Also how would a Ruger Redhawk match up against the same animals?

    My 1000 yard build (for targets) was a .300 WinMag with Turkish Mauser action, modified .300 Weatherby barrel, and I truly believe it would kill both animals mentioned within 150 yards with proper shot placement. The Ruger is no match for the .300 WinMag at that distance.
