Re: Black bear round
Im actually looking into buying a 308 on an AR platform, just for bear hunting in the brush. ive killed bears with a Ruger 44mag pistol/ and multiple kills with 270wsm and a30-06.
Same ol rule of thumb, use what youd use for deer, or a little bigger if it makes you feel more comfy.
how far you plan on shootin? that may come into play in determining if your 308 will be up to the task.
Killin bears isnt that tough. Getting between mamma and her cubs,...well, now you gotta keep a level head, and hope you dont have to shoot your way out. even in this situation i wouldnt feel too under gunned with a fast handeling 308.
