Re: Lets talk .338 bullets

My Browning A-Bolt Stalker likes the Hornady 225 SST. Rem. brass, R 91/2Mag primer, H4831, will give me one small hole at 100yds.

It also likes the Sierra 215 Game King.

I spent some of the best years of my life in hip waders looking for the perfect coastal bear...

I never used a 338 on grizz, but if I did it would be either the 250TSX, or 275 Swift. At high velocities Partitions tend to leave the front nose cavity in the entrance fur and then punch a small hole in the vitals. Wet bears are murder on bullets.
Mountain bears are usually much smaller and the dry fur is much easier to get through.

A 30-06 is a nice size for mountain bears.
If you hunt coastal bears I would prefer a 375. FWIW I pack a 416.

Although we now have to contend with a limited entry draw, we can still self hunt here in B.C.
