338win mag brown bear

I am thinking about buying a .338 win mag for a brown bear hunt and was wanting to see what you all thought about which brand of gun might be better?

Thanks

    Lots of guys seem to love the Tikkas in 338 Win. (695 & T3) But, they're getting hard to find.

    You wont feel a thing when you are shooting the bear LOL.

    As far as at the range shooting it I would

    I have one on my 338 and it definitely tames the beast, i shoot 250gr. Game Kings and no brake can be kinda a pain in the shoulder.

    Stainless Ruger M77mkII.
    275 gr Kodiak Bonded Core @ 2660 pushed by IMR 4831 and a 215 primer.
    That load pushes the 338 into the 375 performance catagory on brown bear
    It's not bad at all on the shoulder but you want 4" of eye relief on your scope. A 1.5-.75 to 6x lighted reticule scope is ideal.
