Kill effectively and Kill are two different things... coming from a guy that lives in Grizz country.
If Grizzly bear is on the menu its 8 Rem mag or bigger for me. I like my .338 RUM but 8 Rem mag, .340 WbyMag, .338 RUM, .338 NM, .338 LM, .338-.378 Wby mag, .378 Wby mag,.375 Ruger or the .375 H+H.
The .284's and .308's get it done, just not with the authority that the bigger stuff does. If your paying to hunt a big bear, I would buy a big gun too.
Nothing beats bullet placement, but a little displacement certainly helps.
