Re: Model 7 .308
I can't speak to bear, but I have the same gun and all I shoot are Winchester 150gr factory. I've never had a deer go more than 3 steps. Most fall in their tracks. I won't ever use anything else unless I feel like having fun. I can't imagine that it wouldn't be just as effective on bear up to a few hundred pounds. I've only managed to recover one round on a deer that I've shot and that one went the whole length of the deer and lodged just under the skin of the hind leg. A few more grains of powder in that round and it would have passed clean through, going from one front shoulder to the opposite hind.
Remember, shoot straight and shoot often.
Good... Bad... I'm the guy with the gun.
