Re: Grizz and the .300 RUM
I have read several comments on Hawk bullets as being similar to the Woodleighs in effectiveness on big, aggressive beasts. They make a 250 gr round nose that they told me would stabilize in my 12 twist .300 Jarrett. They also claim that they will not come apart at high velocity. Any one used them?
For what it's worth, I have talked with several alaskans lately, both guides and civilians. All have said, essentially, that the '06 and .300's will kill big bears quite nicely, but when that same bear is wounded or otherwise enraged, you not only want to kill him, but you want to put him on the ground, NOW, so he doesn't kill you before he expires. The .416's have been suggested more than once as a good caliber for PO'ed bears.
