thanks for any help
Bears are not thick skin-ed but are tough to kill so I would recommend a bonded core bullet
like the Accubond so it would expand and transfer more energy to the game.
I would use something in the 225 to 250grain range.
Solids are made for extremely tough skin-ed game that tend to stop regular hunting bullets
and they will penetrate much deeper (4 to 6 feet ) before spending all of there energy, and
on thin skin-ed animals they will pass through without expending very much energy and
may not drop him .
