Re: Bear Bait rifle

My 375 Ultra with 270gr. TSX seems to work alright.

Re: Bear Bait rifle

I always figured that a 45-70 Marlin aught to be just about right for bears over bait. Seemed to work fine on this boar.

That's the perfect bear gun. The short lever action with alot of stopping power is perfect for bears at close range, my 325wsm Browning BLR (Bear Lever Rifle) has accounted for two in the last 12 months.

You'll have to let me know how TTSX shoots when you get it wrung out.
