This will be my first year hunting bears. Does anyone have experience with bears and a 7-08? I have a box of 140 gr Federal Fusions, 140 gr Core Lokts, and a box of 139 gr Hornady SST. I'm pretty sure I am going to use the Fusions. Just want to make sure I am taking enough gun. Thanks for the help
Enough gun, if people say otherwise, don't get sucked in. as long as you put the round through the lung/heart area with that round, you'll be eating bear roasts....And use the Fusions if they are a shooter in your gun. bonded bullets will generally outperform cup and core bullets for deep penetrating, however, I wouldn't be against using any of the loads you listed.
The more people that I meet, the more I love my dog
