I shot this black bear when I was 17. He scored 18 15/16. He weighed approximately 400lbs. I shot him with my 300 RUM and the 200g SMK. 250 yards behind the shoulder. He slid on his nose for about 5feet. The 200g SMK did kill the bear, however performance for the bullet was not that great. I found it about 3/4 through the bear and the biggest piece I found weighed 20g. The bear was 6'2. He is placed at #10 in Oregon for youth.
