Re: Need knowledgeable advice

If you are just looking to take elk and black bears, the 308 and 270 will get the job done just fine. I doubt know of anywhere in the continental US that you can legally take a grizz so unless Alaska is on the menu, I don't see the need for a different gun. I will say that neither the 308 or 270 will be great for longer range shooting of elk or black bears. If it were me and I wanted a new rifle for elk and up, I'd get a 338 WM, Ultra, or Edge
