Grizzly = Big 30's or above.
The 300 RUM has power, range, and (with a break installed) shoots like a dream.

Re: If you only had one

Fads. This hyper velocity alphabet game is getting out of touch with reality. Better than half of the average guys can't shoot one of them 30 caliber boomers accurately, the other half will jar their fillings loose.

Get a plain vanilla 300Win.Mag and choose a heavy bullet for the bear. On the other hand, why limit yourself to thirty caliber? A 338Win.Mag? Might be a bit heavy for goats and sheep?

The whole question is a bit lame unless you disregard the specification for grizzly. If you have to take that into consideration, now it isn't an All Around North American Big Game rifle; it's a dangerous game rifle. A hyper velocity thirty caliber is not perfectly suitable for grizzly bear, in the real world.

Good hunting. LB

I'm certainly know expert, so take this for what you will. I would check the local game laws. I'm not positive, but i'm pretty sure that in at least some areas a .338 is the minimum requirement for hunting bear. I know this doesn't answer your question, but it is something to consider if you're really considering hunting grizz or kodiaks.
