Re: Mid to long range black bear load help?
Bow hunters kill a lot of bear. With that thought in mind, I'm sure your 7mm is plenty of gun. Some people prefer to have more power than actually needed. I was in a deer camp one year (eastern Kentucky) with a guy that thought he needed a 300 win to put down whitetail. I guess the whitetail he was dreaming about were much larger than the ones that were in the woods. I honestly think some people use the size of their rifle to over compensate for something. The 7mm rem mag is a very powerful cartridge, I'm sure you will be more than fine. Just use a good bullet that wont break apart, and post pictures of your bear.
