I can run varying scenarios through my EXBAL but I'm looking for an energy level. I've heard that 1000 fpe is minimum for deer, 1500 for elk; but Grizzly?
HBO.....help a brother out!
Several years ago the father of one of my friends wanted me to load him up some ammo for his 300RUM to go on a grizzly hunt to Alaska. he was adamant about using 180gr scirocco's. I did as he asked but added my opinion that of all the gun's he had in his gun safe I would use his 338RUM 10 times out of 10 for a grizz hunt.
He went to Alaska and emptied his magazine into a very large grizzly they were able to track it for awhile but were never able to find the bear.
upon his return home he handed me his 338RUM and said load me something I can kill a grizz with, two years later he returned home from Alaska with the grizzly he had shot with his 338RUM loaded with 225gr Accubonds.
