Re: Question on .300 Win Mag Ammo for Bear and bucks
Bears at times seem easy to kill and other times seem bullet proof. Hanging around bear camp in Maine, hear lots of stories of bears hit with lots of different calibers. What appears to be a good hit may go askew when a bullet strikes a rib or edge of the shoulder blade, etc. You're assuming your bullet drove straight through, which may not be the case. Nothing against the 270, but most serious bear hunters seem to prefer 30 caliber and up, standard or mag. The 180 Hornady load should be a winner, never used it but know of many bears taken with similar bullet/load.
