Re: Whats the longest shot you would take on a brown bear

The bears aint got no AK 47's, aint got no hand grenades, ain't got no RPGs. They don't launch no 82s nor 122s at you. Never hear of no 105 buried with trip wires on the trail.

Don't seem hardly worth working up a sweat over.
Certainly not anything I would call "fair" chase. If you should run into some bears that are equally well armed then you just drop me an email. Be happy to help you out.

Try a solid bullet next time in the .338 and shoot into ballistics gelatin and tell me what happens!

My point is that two bullets of the same weight and structural integrity with the slightly smaller bullet having a significant advantage in velocity will not be inferior to the bullet of larger diameter in causing trauma,tissue damage or breaking bones or penetration,that is all I'm saying.The difference in diameter I refer to is .078" and not 0.24....
