Re: .........bear story from wy please share yours....
Depends on a few things. what distance? were they hollow points, wadcutters,fmj, partial jackett..... the list goes on. Where did he hit the bear when he hit it? was this factory ammo, or light loads to reduce collateral damage,and controll recoil?
Too many what if's here.
I have not yet taken anything with my XD-40, but I did take a deer with my Kimber 1911-10mm. I have little doubts that a 40 would suffice just fine. As alot of folks on here know I love to hunt big bears. So Ive killed a few. theyre no harder than a deer to drop. Some run some dump, Ill see what I can do for ya in August with my XD-40. But if I get a chance for a long range poke on one of the bears I have picked out, youll have to wait another year. I have full confidence in my 40 for the lower 48 as my go to backup gun.
