I'm sure a .50 patched ball will do the job on a bear, as dgc alluded to, shot placement is key. My two flinters that I might consider bear medicine are my .50 1:48 twist, which throws a 370gr Maxi with a 90>100gr FFG charge, and my .54 1:60 twist using a patched ball over 100grs of FFG.
Your .50 will do it, just pick your shots and keep the range short. Good luck, hope you get one!
Remember.... they're full time deer......we're part time hunters!
