I know that add'l fancy guns are a want, even if we can convince ourselves they are a need, it just looking for opinions from the wisdom of the interwebs....
I concur. I'm the traditional get closest, and get closer hunter
, lurking here to learn what wasn't available during my period
. Within 350yds, 130gr Nos Part is plenty even for elk moose and griz. If you're going after brownie, then I'd fore go 30-06 and get 7mm Rem mag. I think you need to have a licensed guide to hunt Alaskan bear, and he will probably try to get you within 300 yards.
A good factory rifle is what I prefer. I have custom rifles, But fear of getting them thrashed on a rough hunt.
