Thought I'd share this with y'all...
Buddy of mine guided a friend last Sunday, they killed the pictured bear. This is a solid bear for Western Washington... just shy of 6', around 225 pounds, about 16"-17" skull.
Rifle: Remington Sendero II
Caliber: .300 RUM
Load: 93 grains Retumbo
Bullet: 208 A-Max
Range: 519 yards (fairly decent downhill angle... maybe 15*)
Cranked the scope up 7 MOA (actually inches... but close enough), waited for a nice broadside shot... and WHAMMY!
At the shot the bear folded hard... got up, made about 3 strides, and was down for the count. Made it maybe 20 yards. You can see the entrance right behind the shoulder in the picture. 4 ribs were broken (one was demolished) on the entrance side, lungs were absolute soup, and what's left of the bullet was recovered against the hide on the off side. Total remaining jacket weight was around 75 grains... and as you can see, the core seperated... and some funky stuff happened with the jacket. All in all... the bear ate around 2500 ft/lbs... and went down hard... but, I think I'll be leaning toward the Accu-Bond in the future out of my .300 RUM.
