Re: 338 Magnums and grizzlies

There is no reason to think that a 338 Lapua is too small for any bear. If it was my rifle of choice for hunting, I would proudly carry it into grizz country with confidence.

Re: 338 Magnums and grizzlies

The 338 win mag is plenty for grizzlies. I just anchored one last month in Alaska with mine. One shot at 200 yards and the bear traveled three feet straight down and died right there quickly. 185 Barnes TTSX at 3240 fps. Completely destroyed shoulders and chest cavity along with huge exit wound on back shoulder. With the Barnes bullet you can shoot lighter and flatter because they retain nearly all their weight and blow through any animal while making a mess of their insides.

Re: 338 Magnums and grizzlies

I have been in Alaska since July 23 and just got back yesterday. I am downloading pictures off my camera today and will try to get some pictures on the site today. Got a beautifull blonde interior grizzly with chocholate legs while on the sheep hunt. Game and fish aged him at 5-6 years. Will make a really nice rug.
