I wanna say that the birch is quite a bit higher than the willow. Let me load up a batch of birch and ill let you know. I think that the willow has a bit more velocity but I wanna say that the birch will give you less wind drift because of the higher B.C and S.D.... I found that crack pipe.

A brown bear is only dangerous within paws reach. A 7mag has plenty at that range.
