To me that seems like a very light weight arrow for moose. I'd worry about penetration with that setup. I have not hunted moose but I'd say with a fixed blade sharp broadhead you could do it. My suggestion would to bump that weight up and your speed will drop some but your K.E. and momentum will be deadly.
