Re: A Quote from R.LEE ERMEY

It's funny that ******* matches are so rare on here, usually when they happen they get so far off topic,
<-- is no exception either, actually with the other goings on right now, it's kind of a breather in an odd way

Re: A Quote from R.LEE ERMEY

Sorry to the OP for getting this off topic. This will be my last post on the subject. Take a look at what these guides recommend for brown bears. Hell one of them even requires .375 as a minimum. If all I had was an 06 then I wouldn't even consider a brown bear hunt. Notice I said I. I would be toting my 338 Lapua with 300 gr pills.

Show of hands here
Who has ever been brown bear hunting?
Who will ever be able to aford a brown bear hunt?
As for the 30-06 my guess is it would get the job done and most done in allright fashion but as we all know the 7Mag is what the 30-06 always wanted to grow up to be
